Earlier this year, my wife and I visited a zoo inFuengirola, Spain. There is a fencedoutdoor refuge that holdsseveralfamilies of lemurs. These animals are constantly looking up at the sky -a survival instinct - for signs of hawks which prey on them in their natural environement. While we there, a couple of pigeons flew overhead and the lemurs scattered like crazy, screaming in alarm as they did so. This photo was taken a few moments before the frenzy. Note: I posted this in the Close-Ups section also, but I wanted to share this with you all as well.Cheers, Dan
