Lemurs

November 27th, 2013

Every so often I get the urge to photograph some of the exhibit animals here at the Museum. The subject of the current compulsive episode is Ring-tailed Lemurs.

Besides the long and bushy ringed tail, there’s little doubt that the attraction to these animals is their inquisitive nature and, well, have a look at those peepers.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Great shots Greg. I love the close-up head shots that magnify their exotic faces.
    Would there be a better time of year for clear shots… like now when there are few leaves on the trees. I’ve been thinking about shooting the Lemurs for some time.

    Thanks, Judy.
    If you decide to come over to shoot the lemurs make sure it’s a day when the temps will be above 50 degrees, ideally in the sixties. The lemurs like it warm. Below fifty degrees and they’re confined to the inside spaces but are given access to the indoors/outdoors when the temps are fifty and above. It’s hit or miss during those fifty degree days since they can choose to be inside or outside according to their whims. They’re sure to be outside when it’s a balmy sixty or so degrees outside. And yes, you’ll probably have an easier time of it with fewer leaves on the trees. Let me know when you’re coming over.
    Good luck.

    I must admit that I don’t know who’s who. The bottom four photos are of the same animal, not sure about the top three.

    I can help out with the IDs.

    All but one are of Satyrus. The third photo is of Cassandra.
