Madagascar: A Preview

I just got back from a two week vacation to Madagascar.  The primary reason for going there was to explore nature and check out all the amazing wildlife that it has to offer.  Someone once told me that Madagascar was the Galapagos on steroids.  Given all that I saw after this fairly short trip, I tend to agree.

Here are some sample pictures.  Longer trip reports will be posted after I find the time to sort through all the photos (nearly 3000 were taken).

Verreaux's sifaka (Propithecus verreauxi)

Giraffe Weevil (Trachelophorus giraffa)

Malagasy Paradise Flycatcher (Terpsiphone mutata)

Climbing Mantella (Mantella laevigata)

Laundry Day in Southern Madagascar
