Standing photograph of a meerkat (suricate). He is standing upright slightly left of center on the lookout in the desert. He is looking diagonally to the right, while his front paws hang relaxed along his belly.
Around the eyes and on his nose he has grains of sand.
The ground he is standing on is desert sand with short dry yellow grass. The background of the photo is out of focus and you can see that the grass runs far and wide and that the photo was taken in the desert.
The head of the meerkat stands out against the almost white sky.
