Famadihana

The Malagasy people honor their ancestors by removing their bones from the tombs and rewrap them in new shrouds in this exhumation ceremony called Famadihana "The Turning Of The Bones."

INDRI!

 Some say what happens in Madagascar stays in Madagascar but a mission for anyone out there photographing the Indri. High up in the trees, they only come down for a few hours a day. They live in impossible places to get to unless you are a mountain goat. When they start to call you feel like you have been locked in a room with 40 air sirens all going off simultaneously. A mission, but worth it. They are Madagascar's largest lemur, and the number of individuals left are unknown.
