Forgive this random photo, but I realized that I had the shot and never posted it.
Meet the mouse lemur, the smallest of Madagascar’s native, if strange, primates.
I managed to photograph him in a small tree during a hike through the Reserve de Nahampoana near Ft. Dauphin. This nocturnal little guy hides dutifully during the day, but even at night he’s a bit shy.
My guide spent the better part of an hour scouring various trees and bushes before we spotted him by torch light. He jumped away almost as soon as my flash went off. A second chance for better focus was not an option.
