|The Rhesus Macaque (Macaca mulatta), or simply the Rhesus Monkey, is one of the best-known species of Old World monkeys.

Excellent action photo of these macaques. Very beautiful natural colours, excellent sharpness, DOF, POV and composition.
what a wonderful picture of The Rhesus Macaque taken with superb sharpness in a fantastic pose, marvellous colours in a great composition.
What a lovely image of the monkeys grooming each other. Excellent detail and good contrast of colour.
Oh! These red-bottom monkeys!
What pests they've become!
Sadly, they're so because we forced them to become pests!
A lovely shot, well timed and perfectly framed!
This is a funny image of the rhesus monkeys and well captured. I've seen some amazing documentaries on the mischievious behavior they demonstrate in the city dwellings were they co-exhist with the animal we know as humans.
