The Search for Subjects

While trawling through some old photographs looking for useful reference photos, I discovered the following pictures captured during a visit to our very own Perth zoo.   I want always to depict animals behaving naturally, but I can't decide whether the hyaena and meerkat shown below are striking poses which would make appealing paintings - perhaps they're taking natural behaviour too far!  Thankfully, as neither species is native to Australia, they are automatically ruled out as subjects and any dilemma is avoided!

Best wishes
