26th October 2015. Berenty, Madagascar.
Some images of lemurs in their dream worlds.
A Verraux’s sifaka looking up.
Ringtailed lemur on the ground.
Verraux’s sifaka looking down.
Ringtailed lemur hanging out.
Verraux’s sifakas more deeply in their dream world.
Very young Verraux’s sifaka.
And a last Verraux’s sifaka looking down on us.
OK Murray, what colour are their eyes really? I realise these are IR but there are piercing blue and there are golden, is it the young that have blue eyes of just the angle of the light in IR? Love the shots whatever colour their eyes are, lol
The eyes in the IR images are whatever colour I choose to make them within the range of possibilities that works for each image. After all, though the images reflect both visible and IR light, the IR light is outside our visible spectrum so all colours affected by that are a matter for conjecture.
You can see their actual eye colours in the other posts. Ringtails have brown eyes, ranging from yellow-brown to red-brown, though that range may be partly due to the colour temperature of the light according to the time of day. Verraux’s sifakas seem to have yellow-brown eyes.
Thanks Murray, I hadn’t realised you chose the eye colour!
Awesome the sifakas!

I specifically took the IR camera to Madagascar for those photos – mainly black and white lemurs against a background where the leaves can be white.
