Mara – Patagonian Cavy
Time is little, but I cannot pass without leaving my comment and appreciation for this beautiful photograph. This is the first time I see one of these animals from so close-by, and it is difficult for me to describe what I see. Looking at its head there are certain features that reminds me of a lioness, around the lower part of the face by the chin. The upper part of the face reminds met of a deer. Beautiful portrait with great display of facial details, especially that lovely eyelashes. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

A very odd looking creature, indeed, Janice.
Kind of half hare and half dog??
He has a very big head relative to his body. : P
Good close-up with excellent details.
TFS. : )

This one surely looks relaxed...if that is how something I have never heard, nor seen relaxes:-) Fine lesson today Janice. I alway seem to be learning something new and perhaps that is why the New is in NEW Zealand...well...a stretch, but a fine image...never the less!

Bellissimo ritratto, non conoscevo questo animale, ottimo POV, "dolce" la postura, ottima nitidezza, belli e naturali i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

An excellent zoo image. Color, tonality, composition, DOF and technical quality are very good.

Hi Janice. This looks a bit like a dog to me i think its the face. . You have captured fine detail and colours. He has small legs for a big animal. well done TFS.

when I saw this pic i thought "Maras at NZ??" but after reading your note... i got it! jajaja
is such a beautiful animal...lovely to see in its habitat, at mesetas.
Good shot! good close up, POV and details. Light is good too.
It would be nice to see the hole body in the pic instead of this "american shot".
Good note also.
have a nice weekend.
These are excellent models, Janice. They don't move a lot:-).
