One of the most gregarious and curious lemurs, the Black and White Ruffed Lemur makes the perfect photographic subject. This individual spent considerable time investigating me and my camera and provided quite an acrobatic display as it effortlessly leapt from branch to branch as I tried to keep up. Here I was able to capture a portrait as it took a brief moment between trees, allowing me to capture it backed by the lush green forests of Madagascar that it calls home.
