Lemur Love



I was lucky enough to recently take a trip to Bermuda, island of balmy winds and beautiful beaches. I visited an access all areas zoo where these two lemurs were chillaxing on their information signs. However near I came they glanced dismissively at me through with vivid orange eyes and didn't budge.




It was amazing to get so close to them. As you can see this little guy gave me the cold shoulder. He was probably thinking 'What are you doing in my living room?' But the experience of being so up close and personal was intense and when  I got back I painted this watercolor painting of a Lemur Mommy and Baby.

Happy New Year!
