Meerkats of the Kalahari

Posted by Will on

Matthew and I have recently added a gallery of Meerkat photos to Burrard-Lucas.com. The photographs were taken in the Kalahari Desert (Botswana) over the course of two days last year.

The temptation would have been for us to both use telephoto lenses but we wanted to try and get a fresh perspective by showing the Meerkats in their environment. We therefore worked as a team with one person using a long lens to capture portraits while the other scrambled around on the floor with a wide angle lens!

You can see some of our photographs in this Meerkat Gallery

Here are a few of our favorite photographs:

    the best Telephoto lens that i have used on an SLR is the Canon EF 70-200 F/2.8 lens. Best image quality ever.,,”
