[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
(lemur macaco fulvus)

These very arboreal animals move through the trees by following horizontal branches, leaping from tree to tree in four-footed jumps, and using their long tails for balance. They are primarily herbivores feeding on fruit, flowers, buds and leaves. They are both diurnal and crepuscular.

Mating takes place in April and May. The gestation period is about 4 ½ months. Single births occur most often, but twins are fairly frequent. Mothers are very attentive, first carrying the baby on her belly. After several weeks the young begin to ride on the mother’s back.

Due to habitat destruction, all species of lemurs are listed as endangered.

Bonjour Andrea
C'est une très belle prise de vue. Magnifique ce Lemur dans es arbres.. Belle composition , belles couleurs.
Bravo et merci...JP

Beautiful capture Andrea,Love the composition, with loads of colour and detail...
Well done...

You captured an excellent pose with this shot. The lemur looks to be in control of its environment, an almost kingly stance. You capture both a lot of detail and a sense on imminent action. Well done!
