[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the Lemurs that run freely around the South Lakes Wildlife Park in Cumbria.
There are a troop of about 12 of them and they mingle in with the visitors.
They climb on your shoulders etc. and you can end up with 2 or 3 off them hanging of you as you walk around.
They are really friendly and no one has been bitten or clawed by them.
This one had just leapt from my shoulder and it started posing for the camera.
It is a really good experience to get so close up with these, otherwise, wild creatures.

Regards

Roy

Hi Roy ! This is really a cute lemur ! I love his beautiful black and white coat, and his pose is fantastic. With this arm stretched towards you, he seems to be inviting you to join him. The focus is a bit soft, though ,and it's a pity that you have cut the lemur's fet at the top. Still a very nice shot !
Valérie.
