Dudley, West Midlands, England ~ February 16, 2010
One of the many thinks that makes Dudley Zoo unique and charming is the animals carved in high relief that top some of the entryways at the zoo. This ring-tailed lemur (oddly enough) marks the entrance to the lemur walk-through exhibit (but I suppose they would call it "home," where you can get reasonable up-close and personal with several species. Just don't try to touch or taunt them. If you behave nicely, they'll pose for you with no bars or fencing between your camera and the lemurs - and close enough that you don't need a long lens.
