Don Corleone by mydigitalmind Don Corleone by mydigitalmind
This guy held the pose for quite a while. The lighting in this exhibit was interesting... very dark, except for the spotlight.

Species: Ring-tailed Lemur
Location: Staten Island Zoo, New York
Lens: Canon EF 70-200 F4 L IS USM

Reminds me of King Julien from Madagascar. :giggle:

I love the lighting. Makes him look like an evil mastermind.

Thanks :) The lighting helps make the picture, but it sure was dark other than the spotlight!

I know how how hard it is to take photos in lighting like that.

When I first saw this I thought it was some guy in a badger costume XD Then I saw Lemur and then I was like... oh. It's a real lemur. Well he looks very stoic XD I didn't know Lemurs were that capable of looking THAT intelligent. He looks very philosophical :love: Great shot! :D

i have to agree...the lighting in this is so out of the norm of animal shots, yet it gives the shot a uniqueness that works with the pose and emotion of the animal! :thumbsup:

additional: then again, I do find that the zoo exhibits are not often set-up for the benefit of the photographer ;)

The exhibit didn't really seem like it was set up for the benefit of the animal either. All of the exhibits were quite small and not very natural =\

Looks like he's reclining in a lounge chair. Really well captured, those sort of lighting conditions are always tough.

Wasn't too too long. When :devd-i-e-g-: saw him, he wasn't holding his leg. Then after we left and came back, he was walking around.
