A meerkat family warms up at sunrise in Oudtshoorn, South Africa. “Shortly after waking up, a meerkat family—also called a gang or mob—will warm in the sun to harvest energy for the day,” writes Clemens Capek. The animals are normally shy, but one family in the area became accustomed to humans in close proximity, allowing Capek to capture them in their natural surroundings.
Capek’s image was recently featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.
