Meerkat Mischief in the sun

Yesterday we visited the kats in the late afternoon and stayed until they went below ground.
The dandelions are in full bloom and it was the first time, the youngsters saw these flowers.

All of the adults are very keen on getting and eating the dandelion blossoms and the first fresh leaves. Later in the year when the dandelion is getting more bitter, they don`t like them any more.

Some of them - Orlok in particular - make some very daring and high jumps to get at the flowers. The youngsters were quick in imitating the adults´behaviour and to our surprise Sayuri is jumping, too and she managed landing quite well.

A couple of days ago we also had a dandelion salad ;-)
