I’m creeping through a forest in Gabon. Chasing elephants. Dangerous, enormous elephants.
Being a caring nature-lover, I figured it would be a good idea to sneak up on the swans and scare them.
The bald eagle would swoop down toward the lake, in pursuit of duck confit, and all the ducks would start squawking and circling up into the air. The sky looked like it was full of swirling, squawking pepper flakes.
The Duke Lemur Center is a magical oasis of Madagascan paradise (which just means it’s a nice spot in Duke Forest that happens to have some lemurs in it) where I get to spend some of my time.
