Lemur Dreams


The Ring-tailed lemur, like all of the 60 lemur species that call Madagascar home, is known for it’s boundless energy and enthusiasm, watch a television documentary or visit their island home and you will witness them bouncing from tree-to-tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀

This energy does however pose a challenge for photographers, unless of course you are seeking photographs of this commonly recorded behaviour. I have no interest in creating another image of another leaping lemur, rather I wanted a portrait that demonstrated the beauty of this creature. For the image to work needed good light, an unusually calm lemur and a degree of intimacy, there was no room for anything less than perfection.⠀⠀⠀⠀

Everything came together long enough for me to capture three images, the exposures either side where toast, but the middle one was perfect.
