The Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta) is a large prosimian, a lemur belonging to the family Lemuridae. The Ring-tailed Lemur is the only species within the monotypic genus Lemur and, like all other lemurs, is found only on the island of Madagascar.

Although threatened by habitat destruction and therefore listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List, the Ring-tailed Lemur is the most populous lemur in zoos worldwide; they reproduce readily in captivity.

taken in Safaripark Beekse Bergen.
Monopod. IS on.
Servo modus...forgotten why:-)...jumping lemur?;-)

Bonjour Annick,

Superbe photo, composition excellente, j'aime bien le regard de la mère qui ne semble pas importuné par la caméra et tout le contraire chez le petit qui nous donne l'impression de se demander qui est là.


You definitely have a talent for catching your subjects paired off. Great! :)
This is an adorable shot - great details and wonderful lighting. Good!

Hi there,
I am finally back and semi-recovered from my jet lag, so I hope to catch up on some of the beautiful shots I have missed in the past month. : 0
I love the pose on this mother and child shot, Annick.
You certainly caught the perfect eye contact with the young one, and I also like the perpendicular orientation of the two gazes, with the mother staring to the left, and the baby staring straight at you.
And I love that little hand holding on to mom's neck!
Great shot and TFS. : )

Hi Annick,

Beautiful capture. Good compositio, POV and sharpness.

Hello Annick,

This is an absolutely beautiful, well composed super sharp portrait of a baby lemur and his mother! I love the simplicity of the composition, the pose of the subjects, the eye contact and the perfect background. One of the best animal portraits I've seen on TN. I'll choose it as a favorite if you don't mind. Thanks for posting this beauty!

With Friendly Regards,

very nice and intimate, TFS Ori
