    Last weekend, I ran a lot behind this lemur to take his/her picture. This was my first zoo experience, so comments and critics are appreciated.

    The composition is great and the bg compliments the image.

    The depth of field is perfect and the eyes on that lemur are sure attention-drawing! You must have been holding on pretty steady to that lens to have taken it at 1/40 at 190mm :)

    Thanks!

    I spent around 20 minutes to take some nice pictures. Because they are moving very fast. At the end something took his attention and valla.
    Actually it is the magic of Image Stabilizer:)
