Ring-Tailed Lemur

Species: Ring-tailed Lemur | Location: West of Ambositra, Madagascar

I was on my third week of a trip to Madagascar. We were heading towards the west coast and stopped at a small local lemur reserve. After hiking for about 20 minutes, we found the lemurs. This one just sat and looked at me, so I got the camera ready and took 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
