Tarsiers are small animals with enormous eyes; each eyeball is approximately 16 mm in diameter and is as large as their entire brain. Tarsiers also have very long hind limbs. In fact, their feet have extremely elongated tarsus bones, from which the animals get their name. The head and body range from 10 to 15 cm in length, but the hind limbs are about twice this long (including the feet), and they also have a slender tail from 20 to 25 cm long. Their fingers are also elongated, with the third finger being about the same length as the upper arm. Most of the digits have nails, but the second and third toes of the hind feet bear claws instead, which are used for grooming. Tarsiers have very soft, velvety fur, which is generally buff, beige, or ochre in color.
Unlike other prosimians, tarsiers have no toothcomb, and their dental formula is also unique:

My 1st visit to your gallery and you do have some good portraits and landscape shots.
A lovely capture of this tiny little creature that is so cute and adorable with big eyes. Good exposure within the shade of the tree but I find the focus is a bit soft as the leaves appear sharp, not the tarsier.
The contrast and tone seem to be a bit flat for me, perhaps some adjustment tweaks/brightness will enhance this presentation.
excellent! amazing macro capture! and very good colours; perfect sharpness and I like your presentation, well done;
