|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This picture was scanned from a slide I took with my old Olympus OM1N in the Lokobe Nature Reserve in Nosy Be, the largest island of Madagascar, off its north west coast.|
Lemurs are primates that are unique to Madagascar.
The female of the black lemur is brown - this lady has her infant clinging onto her back but, nonetheless, was still able to leap about the forest with ease. But she wasn't shy and I had to take off my telephoto and put on a standard 50mm lens to get this shot. Wonderful creatures!
Hope you enjoy.

A wee bit of contrast wouldn't have gone amiss here, but I still give you a two-banger for the good shot of a rare (in my mind) animal.

first of all welcome here on TN (TrekNature).
nice POV, with a spot sharpness in my oppinion.
maybe more space around the animal, specially around the head and also pity that one legs and the tail are cut.
i hope you will like here, TFS (Thanks For Sharing),

thank you for posting this picture out of the pre-digital era. I always like to see the unique - often threatend - species from Madagascar.
A nice nature document.
Best wishes, Peter
