|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Verreaux's Sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi) is a medium sized primate in one of the lemur families, Indriidae. It lives in Madagascar and can be found in a variety of habitats from rainforest to western Madagascar dry deciduous forests and dry and spiny forests. The fur is thick and silky and generally white with brown on the sides, top of the head, and on the arms. Like all sifakas, it has a long tail that it uses as a balance when leaping from tree to tree. However, its body is so highly adapted to an arboreal existence that on the ground its only means of locomotion is hopping. The species lives in small troops and forages for food in the morning and late afternoon, resting during the hottest part of the day.|

I love this shot. I am sure mum is saying "Don't worry, trust mue" The baby looks very young hanging on there. I think the composition is very good, you seem to have good shadows and tone on the white fur of the mother. The Lemurs are very sharp and stand out againt a good DOF. Having both eyes of the mother climbing the tree makes it more endearing. Wonderful job.
Haha this made me laugh.. it's cute... I really like this moment.. good one. I like the sharpness as well..
Thanks a lot for leaving your comment on my recent picture. I took note of your endorsement of Ivan's help with the ID of the bird. I have now revised the note accordingly.
I like your picture of Sifaka for its novelty for me; I have seen it for the first time.
The picture is well taken, though shooting a white subject is not an easy task.
Well done and TFS.
A very nice shot on this Sifaka. Nice job on the exposure getting good color and detail in that white fur. Well composed and framed with a nice backround. Well done!
