[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A young hanuman langur (Semnopithecus entellus), of the tufted southern race, from the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, South India. This particular troop is highly habituated to people and sometimes even eat food thrown away by people - an unusual behavior for a largely folivorous (leaf eating) monkey. They also share this human space with troops of bonnet macaques and interbreeding is known to occur between the species over here.

Hi Ravi
This is really nice shot of this little monkey. Cool pose and expression.

Hi Ravi,
A funny image. And a good as well. Especially through the light and the composition. For example the catch lights in its eyes are outstanding.
Well done
