The Lemur and Me
On my last morning at Monkeyland in South Africa, I was out getting the last few shots I needed. I had been filming a black and white lemur eating at one of the feeding stations. He jumped off the table and looked around a bit. And, then he decided to watch me film. I was a little nervous although I didn´t really think he was going to do anything. I turned the camera head on him and he just hung out. Afraid of making any sudden movements that would scare or unintentionally provoke him, I stayed still even though I remained out of the shot despite some body contortions to minimize my presence. After 3 minutes, something else grabbed his attention and he walked away, grazing my pant leg as he left me.
