He described it as follows in one of the comments he made about this interaction on Twitter: “When you’re a wildlife photographer, the idea is to blend in with your environment so that you don’t scare off the animals.”

In the hilarious video, Kleer can be seen lying on the ground with his camera while a meerkat is perched on top of his head. The sneaky photographer is at last encircled by a significant number of the fluffy creatures. They interact with him as though he were a part of the natural scene that surrounds them, and they appear to be at peace with each other overall.
