[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This friendly fella is Madagascar's biggest Lemur species; Indri Indri. It measures the size of a full grown man's torso. Their calls can be heared miles away; loud, high, 3-tone howling noises that resemble a bit the sound whales make.

Indri's are on the edge of extinction and can only be found deep in the heart of eastern Madagascar's rainforests. It's very hard to keep them in captivity and breed them because of their exclusive plantleave diet; only a few zoos worldwide keep this type of lemur.

reposted the image due to critiques. Not cropped, less sharpened, smaller frame. Thanks.

Very good image Dylan with crisp detail and nice POV. Very well done. TFS

Ahh this looks much better than the original (in my opinion). Now the we can see the some of the lemur's habitat and I think its a bit brighter, so the detail is much better. I certainly didn't pick up the small tail last time. I prefer the reduced border. Composition is now great and DOF is good. The only minor nit I can see is the image may be a bit to centred. But that is trivial.
This is a great shot.
