What is more appealing than a dancing Sifaka!  Wonderful action capture, Diana. 

Beautifully done - no wonder its a favourite.  :D

Great image to go along with the portrait you posted a while back. Action captured well here. I’m posting a link of them dancing like I did last time, for those unfamiliar with them:

Thanks so much for posting the video. The Berenty Reserve in Madagascar is exactly where I took this photo. That orange sand makes such a great background. The sifaka are so much fun to watch and photograph. They don't like being on the ground so they move VERY fast! Challenging but fun!
