Meerkats are some of the most charismatic animals on the African savannah. With their inquisitive personality and humorous antics, they're a lot of fun to photograph. Will Burrard-Lucas, creator of the BeetleCam and BeetleCopter, got up close with this family of meerkats and a whole lot of cute happened, as this video and the following images show. It's especially cute when the baby meerkats explore the camera for themselves. When I wondered aloud to Will how he managed to get shots without making "squee" noises, he replied, "Lots of practice."
