Big 5s

Lucía Rodríguez Valverde

Director, Lemur Conservation Network

“My favourite animal to photograph is definitely the indri. The indri is an extremely special lemur species. It is not only the biggest lemur species of all but also it has certain aspects that makes it different to every other animal I have ever seen. They have weird eyes that makes you think of extra-terrestrial beings. They’re extremely agile and jump easily throughout the canopy of the trees. When they do their calling, it’s like listening to the best song in the world.

When you are in their presence, you feel extraordinarily grateful and privileged. Being able to capture some of these moments with your camera, especially to capture all the group under one tree, these photos becomes one of your most precious treasures.”
