A Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta)
enjoying the sun in the Ramat Gan/Tel-Aviv Safari/Zoo.

The Ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur catta) is a large
prosimian, a lemur belonging to the family Lemuridae.
The Ring-tailed Lemur is the only species within the
monotypic genus Lemur and, like all other lemurs, is
found only on the island of Madagascar.

Although threatened by habitat destruction and
therefore listed as vulnerable by the IUCN Red List,
the Ring-tailed Lemur is the most populous lemur in
zoos worldwide; they reproduce readily in captivity.

Hi Thor and a very happy Easter to you too!

Is he doing Yoga??? :))))
What a terrific and very funny pose!
Your POV here is excellent and it really gave you a great angle for this lovely lemur
The details and textures on his face and fur are very well and tech-sharp while the exposure is spot-on and the colors are charming.
I really like the colors in his eyes that contrast well with the ones of the fur, making then stand out so nicely.
All-in-all: a charming composition!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Thorsten, what a great pose. Good detail and DOF. Happy Easter to you to.

Hi Thor

Fabulous shot of the Lemur basking in the Sun, nicely composed shot with a great POV and I do like classic Lemur Sunbathing pose, nice detail and perfect colours too.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hi Thorsten

Ha..ha...catching the Easter weekend rays! Love the pose and those eyes. TFS.

Hi Thor,
You captured your model at its best pose! Those eyes are very sharp and beautiful. Excellent shot, my friend.


Hi Thorsten,
wie konnte ich diesen süßen Kerl nur verpassen!
Soooo süß, ich liebe diese lustigen Kerlchen.
Diese Pose ist putzig, ein richtiger Genießer.
Wenn Du Affen und Lemuren magst - warst Du schon mal in Appeldoorn/Holland - dort ist ein großer Affenpark, fast ohne Zäune und Gräben, gerade diese Cattas kann man da fast streicheln. Und kleine gelbe Schelme klettern an Dir herum und durchsuchen Deine Taschen ... es war so schön dort, aber leider selbst von Dir aus kein Katzensprung, ich schätze mal locker 300 km?!?
Viele Grüße

What a funny capture Thorsten!
This guy is meditating :) He has the perfect pose for that. He must be the wise of its family. This is a great capture, very sharp and superbly exposed. I love its bright red eyes and this expression. This is definitively a great shot. TFS,

Hi Thor,
lovely Lemur with nice pose, nice eyes and terrific and very funny shot.

Well done

Hi Thor. You got a very relaxed shot of this fine animal. Beautifully clear and good colours. He looks like he is enjoying a talk by Sir David Attenborough! Greetings from OZ. Murray.
