Undoubtedly I went so far with the intention of collecting images of birds, but when I started this journey my greatest ambition was not a bird but a "western tarsier".
An animal whose look is tenderness in its most emotional phase.
A day of night walk without excitement, another frustrated by the heavy rains that unleash here in the most sudden way and finally the famous February 3 that will be embedded in my memory for the rest of my days.
So when I'm old, and without much choice to remember, just tell me: think of that already distant February 3.
I have no doubt that my face will be filled with a smile

Such beautiful creatures!  I think having such a sweet image of one of these precious little tarsiers would make anyone smile.   :) Well done!

These primates are just wonderful. Having spent time working with them, my suggestion would be that you refrain from using flash as their eyes are so incredibly sensitive. Static torches with high ISO would be a kinder approach.
