Adorable Friendship between Photographer and Meerkats

U.K. wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas developed a unique and adorable friendship with gangs of meerkats after spending six days living among them in Botswana.

These tiny social animals are native to southern Africa and are always on the lookout for large predators like eagles, hawks, jackals and falcons. Once the meerkats determined Burrard-Lucas was no threat to them, they started using his head, camera, back and neck to get better view over the long grass.
