Love this one, the expression on the monkey's face and the soft lighting goes along very well.

It ain't easy to capture the rest of the shots under the tree canopy too. Good work!

:thumbsup:

Don't go alone when taking picture of monkeys. I was chased once while trying to take their photos.

These marlao quite funny sometime. Whenever I encounter some male that came near to challenge showing their teeth, use to walk away and they actually come nearer knowing that you avoiding them. Nowaday, when they come near showing me their teeth, I show them I have bigger teeth too and making some firce sound and haha most of the time the back up and run away haha. Maybe I shd wear a fake vampire teeth to challenge them haha.

Yeh, should have a partner so when u looking into viewfinder and composing shots, partner can jargar your behind and side. ;)

Saw on one occassion when monkey ran towards a kid holding a pack of potato chips and just snatch the pack of chips, kid was attacked from side, after that poor thing, crying at the top of his lungs, must have been a freightening experience for the poor kid
