One Horse Or Two?

I took this photograph a couple of years ago at a ‘Spectacle’ featuring birds of prey in nearby St-Germain-de-Confolens.

The answer to the rhetorical question in the title is actually ‘two’, although the optical illusion is that it’s just a single horse, albeit one with a very long neck. Either way, I think the image is quite striking.

Aaaww, meerkats

Who doesn’t love a meerkat? This photograph was taken at Al Ain Zoo a few years ago. I particularly like the quizzical expression of the one on the left.
