Male of Red fronted lemur (Elemur fulvus rufus)
They have a long furry tails,unfortunately not seen on my photo! assisting them in maintaining their balance. Colouration of this lemur differs between the sexes. Males have grey-brown upperparts, paler creamy-grey underparts and a reddish crown . Females have far more reddish-brown upperparts and a grizzled-grey crown. Both sexes have prominent white eyebrow patches and distinctive bushy white cheeks, although these are far less bushy in females than in males. The face, muzzle and mid-forehead are dark grey to black, with a thin dark line dividing the crown .

jaki słodki leniuszek;-)))
Podoba mi się sytuacja w jakiej uchwyciłeś tego lemura, odpoczynek w cieniu w cichym zakątku na gałęzi.
Kompozycja zdjęcia jest też ciekawa no i kolorki są dobre.
TFS and regards

Hallo Albert,
Mooi koppie, beetje slaperig:-)
Perfecte zetel, denk ik.
Heel goed moment en compo.
Plezante foto uit Madagascar.

Hello Albert,
A very fine capture of this interesting and beautiful Lemur resting in the tree. Excellent focus on the sleepy eyes! Sharp details and fine colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

bonjour Albert

j'adore cette image, on dirait qu'il est un animal paresseux,
mais c'est peut-être la chaleur qui le rend ainsi,
excellent POV et cadrage, belle luminosité de l'image,
et superbe netteté et détails, TFS
