Indri - feeding, Mitsinjo reserve, Andasibe, Madagascar Documenting the Mitsinjo reserve Indri experience, a rare opportunity to meet an Indri eye-to-eye. <br />
<br />
As it wasn&#039;t the first time to see an Indri for us, I took some more photography risk. I rarely use (or even bring) my portrait lens, but this time I took a gamble to use this 85mm f/1.4 lens on wildlife. At f/1.4, it barely gets an eye ball sharp. It renders everything else in the scene smooth as butter, which generally works well on people and pets.<br />
<br />
Some may find it too soft and hate it, in that case my defense is what everybody else owning this lens says: it&#039;s art, I don&#039;t expect you to understand.<br />

The indri, also called the babakoto, is one of the largest living lemurs. It is a diurnal tree-dweller related to the sifakas and, like all lemuroids, it is native to Madagascar.
