"Leave Nothing but Footprints, Take Nothing But Pictures"

Born and raised on Long Island; presently based out of South Carolina LAURA SALZHAUER is a recent graduate with a B.A. in Environmental Studies and self taught photographer.

My major subject is wildlife photography, however I love taking pictures of just about anything. I hope my pictures inspire others to appreciate the biodiversity on Earth and support conservation.

Cryptoprocta ferox, Fossa

If only I could have seen one of these guys in the wild! I was dying to see one! This individual was at the Bronx Zoo, I know its cheating but hopefully I can go back to Madagascar one day and find them.

Varecia rubra, Red- Ruffed Lemur

(this is one species I did not get to see in the wild)

Indri-indri, Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar.

Last of the Indri (and some of my favorite shots) and last trip as a group in Madagascar. These days are truly missed.

Indri indri - Andasibe- Mantadia National Park, Madagascar.

I can not get over this species. I love them. This is the second to last post of them, and second to last post on my entire Madagascar adventure.

Indri Indri- Andasibe-Mantadia National Park, Madagascar

I know these are not the clearest of all photos, but I’m putting them up because of the cool movement the Indri has; this one is also carrying a baby, imagine if humans were like these primates?
