Species: Eastern Bamboo Lemur | Location: Lemur Island near Perinet Reserve, Madagascar
We were on our last day of the Madagascar trip and we stopped at Lemur Island on the way back to Tana. Four species of lemurs came out to greet us. While these are wild lemurs, they are habituated to humans and have no fear. I was especially enamored with the Eastern Bamboo Lemurs, as they were very small and cute. I stayed with the bamboo lemurs and watched them as they jumped from tree to tree and played. I kept the ISO high as the sun kept hiding behind clouds and the lemurs were in the shade. This lemur finally posed for me and I was able to get the shot.
About The Photographer
I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments.
