Back at the Lemur Center

Hey Hey its Al from the Lemur studios just kidding.  I went to the Duke Lemur Center in Durham, NC which I had not been since Kindergarten which was 22 years ago, along time ago for me , I know right!

I captured at least seven different pieces of lemurs that reside in the Duke Lemur Center. Most of them are Nocturnal which means they roam around at night and the others roam around during the day which is very cool.

Lemurs are very rare now in Madagascar due to the fact that they are being moved from their habitat due to construction of new homes or their forest is destroyed.

During the visit we saw many techs working and enjoying hanging around the lemurs that reside there.


A lot of the lemurs that we saw were playful and just having fun in their cages. Many of the group caught photographs of the Lemurs including me.


I had an awesome time returning after 22 years back to the Duke Lemur Center and I hope to come back again soon to photograph more Lemurs and hopefully catch some of their mating behaviors there as well.

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.




This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.


This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.


The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.
