This was one of those moments that I knew I had truly achieved the result I had dreamed of for so long – it was an encounter that I will never forget.

If you’ve been following me for a while then you’ll probably have noticed that I’ve been working ring-tailed lemurs regularly over the past few months, that’s because I’ve had an idea in my mind and have been trying to turn that into reality.

A head-on portrait of a ring-tailed lemur may not be groundbreaking, but it’s a shot I’ve always wanted to capture – a single frame that really shows the beauty, grace and personality of these beautiful primates.

The difficulty, I quickly discovered, was that they don’t often give you, or the camera, their full attention, and why should they?

Finally, after many attempts and many hours, I feel I have achieved my goal. I think he surrendered to the camera for a split second.
