Trying to get as close to the butterfly as possible.
This is one of the very first giant chameleon that I saw in Madagascar during my first trip here in November 2013. It was living on a big mango tree in the village that I was staying in for my fieldwork. I tried to take at least a few photographs every day to get the shot I wanted, and this is one of my favourite.

Brown lemur in Mitsinjo
Photographing wildlife is never easy, especially the ones that move a lot. Even though these lemurs, brown lemurs, are relatively common in and around Mitsinjo in Andasibe, and would appear in the afternoon just outside the hall where we had our meeting, I hardly managed to get a good shot. From what I had this is the best, not really happy with the result but this will do for now.
One of the rarest birds in the world, the Pink Pigeon endemic to Mauritius was once on the brink of extinction. The population now stands above 400 through conservation efforts. I saw this one on the trip to Ile aux Aigrettes.
