Shot at Express Highway; this close up of Bonnet Macaque at Khandala was peculiar adjacent to Duke's Nose View Point. This fellow was basking in the scanty sunlight of monsoon & was seen with wide range of gestures. This is one of his passport kind close up ;)


The Bonnet Macaque (Macaca radiata) is a macaque endemic to southern India. Its distribution is limited by the Indian Ocean on three sides and the Godavari and Tapti Rivers along with a related competing species of Rhesus Macaque in the north.

This Old World monkey is a diurnal animal. It is 35-60 cm long plus a tail of 35-68 cm. Males weigh 5.5 to 9 kg., females 3.5 to 4.5 kg. It can live more than 30 years.

The Bonnet Macaque feeds on fruits, nuts, seeds, flowers, invertebrates and cereals. In southern India this macaque exists as commensal to humans, feeding on food given by humans and raiding crops and houses.

Two subspecies of Bonnet Macaques have been identified: Macaca radiata radiata and Macaca radiata diluta.

Hello Subhash,

Hope you are enjoying a beautiful summer in the mountains.
With thanks, and best regards,

Hi Subhash,

I've never seen a passport picture as good as this! The pose and facial expression are both wonderful. Nice hair-do too. I love the eyes and wrinkled forehead. I'll never forget the first time I saw monkies running wild in India. Not a sight we see here.

Well captured subject with immotions and sharpness. thanks.

Yes, Dr. Ranjan, this fellow was posing just for you.... THOSE EYES!!!

This is one of your great images, my friend.... so detailed.
Perfect light. Great capture.

My dear friend,
I cannot answer this Question about likeness, but you seem to be astute with the camera at high altitude as well as close up.

May I approach you for my next passport photo, please ?!? Will travel :-)
