Back from Madagascar – A taste of what’s to come!

Hello again readers!

I have returned from my two months in Madagascar. The expedition was a huge success and I had a phantastic time.

Unfortunately, the work involved was labor intensive and did not lend itself particularly well to being photographed, so the photographic yield was not great. Nonetheless, I took about 2000 shots, and these are going to form the bulk of the upcoming posts.

Here’s a small taster of what’s to come (click for higher resolution):

I hope that is enticing enough to build excitement for the forthcoming posts.  These should follow fairly soon, but until then, keep clicking.
