2009 Digital Calendar photo description

"Surveying the Flowery Scene for Danger"


Early morning in the Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, and following the

first summer rains, the bush had burst forth with a splash of bright yellow Devil Thorn flowers.

Suddenly, out of nowhere, this Marsh Mongoose appeared, stood up on its hindquarters

and surveyed the scene for danger.


Marsh Mongoose - Atilax paludinosus


The Marsh Mongoose is big and dark brown, varying to lighter, speckled or red brown in colour

and often seen near water. It has sturdy, short legs and a thick tapered tail. Its feet are long,

have unwebbed toes and naked soft palms


Nikon D2xs,�12.4 megapixel resolution, AF VR-Nikkor 80-400 mm  f4.5-5.6 D lens, at 400 mm,
