It's not often that you see two species of lemurs, separated by only a few feet, foraging in the same tree. But (nearly) spring, with its maple flowers and release from winter quarters will do that to a free ranging lemur. It's interesting to note here that each lemur is demonstrating a foraging position favored by their species: the sifaka dangles underneath a delicate branch, while the ring-tailed lemur somehow balances on top of one.
