You have to love the vivid color of this fish. This photo turned out better than I expected, but I wish the focus was a bit sharper on the fish – in part, due to the very low light conditions. The ISO was cranked up to 3200.

It’s all in the eyes. This ring-tailed lemur obviously had his mind on other things. This is one picture, I think , is worth a thousand or so words.
What do you imagine he’s thinking about? Is he working calculus problems in his head? Fondly remembering a long lost love? Thinking ahead of an upcoming vacation on a secluded, tropical island? Fresh bananas?
I don’t know exactly what he was thinking about. Your guess is as good as mine.

I find the natural markings of zebras irresistible. The crisp, black and white, zig and zag are a magnet to my eyes.
I deliberately over-cropped this guy’s image to emphasize the pattern – the genius of natural design.
I added a little twist of my own to the natural design of the zebra’s stripes to create the “thing” below. (I don’t know what to call it.) It’s actually the neck and short mane of a zebra (original picture on the right) mirrored left and right and up and down.
Reminds me of those old, psychological, ink-blot tests. What do you think it looks like? I wonder what it might reveal about me, for creating it?
Something about that high-contrast, black and white…
These Ring-tailed Lemurs didn’t care to walk among the herd of turtles on their path, so they took to leaping over them. The turtles just watched.
Notice the pink reflection in the water. Those are flamingos on the shore beyond the water’s edge.
I snapped a number of photos of the Lemurs on a recent visit to the zoo in Indianapolis, IN. You’ll see a few more images posted here in the near future, so check back often.
