    I find that three is too much empty space near the top which leaves the eye lost and looking for a subject. I like how the meerkat is staring into the empty space though, perhaps a slight tighter crop would help.

    Yes the picture does have a warm colour cast to it on my LCD. Colour tones are a meatter of personal taste and since you did not mention what kind of atmosphere or story you wanted to tell I assumed that was your prefered chice of colour.

    Yup! Eyes looking straight at the camera. Maybe you can move to the right more and get a better side view of the meerkat.

    like how the meerkat is isolated and staring at the empty space.. almost like its thinking "where's the rest of the colony?"

    The trick is patience. You jsut have to wait for them to turn your way. I was licky enough to have them pose nicely for me on 2 diff occations.

    or the ah-beng whistle works on most animals except birds - they get scared! it gets their attention but you have to be quick! never thought i'd see the day i'd use that but it sure beats waiting endlessly while the mozzies suck you dry.
