Animals: Our Photogenic Friends
Nobody can doubt the human reaction to animal expression such as the doleful eye of the Spaniel or the menacing gaze of a Tiger. Small wonder then that our four legged friends feature prominently in advertisements. But wait, all animals aren't four legged, in fact many have no legs at all. The Animal Kingdom includes any living thing that can move its location from one point to another, which extends from the uni-celled Amoeba to the massive Blue Whale: from Caterpillars to Crocodiles, and from House Martins to Humans. As the latterr are considered elsewhere maybe we should have called this a pictorial celebration of non-human animals - but some would argue that their pets are more human than we are!

The Red Fronted Brown Lemur (below) can look as doleful as the the saddest Labrador, and the Ring Tailed Lemur as mischievous as a kitten. These photographs were taken on safari in Madagascar. Lemurs vary in size and temperament from the small nocturnal Mouse Lemur weighing just 30 to 80 grams to the Indri Indri which weighs 6 to 10 Kilograms. While some species are quite timid and difficult to find, let alone photograph, others react to humans in quite a friendly and open manner. Many of these are beautiful creatures and it is a privilege to communicate with them. Who are we to call them primitive primates?!
