Gerry Ellis - September 14, 2006 – Perinet Special Reserve

In sharp contrast to the lowland forest of Nosy Mangabe (island) the hilly tropical rainforests of the Perinet region, at just over 2,000 ft., are cool and night air invites a jacket. We arrive late but just in time for a night wildlife walk, Perinet is excellent for spotting frogs, lizards and small nocturnal lemurs by their eye-shine from our flashlights. Every night we will head out and see what we will find, and every night should offer different opportunities. The below photos we created with the Nikon D200 built-in flash and an 80-200mm f/2.8 lens; ISO set at 200.
