! * Ring-tailed Lemur under captivity. Image taken in Prague Zoo

Ring-tailed Lemur
Lemur catta

The Ring-tailed Lemur 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.

Very nice shot. Good composition (but maybe you could crop it a little bit more from the left side), beautiful buckground color. Perfect sharpness. I also like the OOF flower on foreground

Very good job

Hi Selen,
what a great portrait of this Lemur, the facial expression and detail in the fur is superb. The background is very good and the OOF flower in the foreground really creates a feeling of him (her??) sat peacefully amongst the grasses. Nice colour throughout too, great shot.

Bonjour Selen,
très jolie photo de ce lémurien,
j'aime beaucoup sa pose et son attitude tranquille, la lumière est excellente et l'arrière plan est très doux, jolie composition très agréable à regarder

Hi Selen,
Very nice shot with a good BG, well composed and sharp;

Hi Selen,
Thought you were in Madagascar now;-)
Second thought (in fact it was my first)...'hey somebody stole my image:-)'
In fact it is a beautiful portrait you made. And your model has very soft and beautiful eyes. Matching foreground and background.
Well done!

voici une macro parfaitement réusie, tres bons détails , belles couleurs tres nettes sur un parfait bg flou, bravo

Hi Selen. Very fine close up with a lot of emotion seemingly showing through. Indeed, good hair day. TFS. Murray.

J'y étais il y a deux semaines!Excellent souvenir et une expérience fort agréable que de se promener au milieu des Maki Catta.
Jolie photo,merci.


Hi Selen
This guys are always cool looking and funny to play with. Nice shot!

Hola Selen,
precioso retrato,
bellos ojos y buen encuadre.
color y bg, estupendos.

Lovely shot Selen, excellent detail I love the narrow dof, and the look on the Lemur face as if to say “just take the picture” very nice, Cheers Rick :)

He is a little cutie.
Nice focus on eyes.
For a zoo, this is a nice POV and good natural looking surrounding.

Hi Selen.
What a cute creature you have pictured. Its pose and expression of eyes are simply great. You have reflected its state of mood excellently. Amazinh combination of sharpness of the lemur and blurriness of the BG as well as the colours of your hero and BG. Bravo and TFS.

Excellent work, Selen! The contrast from the sharp to the unsharp is great! The lemur is, of course, beautiful! Well taken!

A very nice portrait shot of this lemur the soft light green background is the perfect seeting for this contrasty animal. Well done Selene. :)
