[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A local wild monkey, sold to the a buddhist monk for a few kip. He calls for his mother, a mournful, "whoo, whoo". It has been proven that animal mothers teach the correct behavior to their childen. If removed as babies, they often lack proper socail molding, and survival skills, preventing a release into the wild afterwards.

He looks sad and his eyes look doleful. You have caught his fragility so well in the picture. It is a beautiful shot Gloria.

Hello Gloria
Fantastic portrait of this budhist monk.
The light and sharpness are excellent.

Very good apealing portrate Gloria , those eyes pering out from under the eye-lashes are something else.
The note is so true, and is a major problem with all wild captured primates, TFS

Fantastic shot, Gloria. The clarity of it is just excellent and those eyes are amazing. You captured it in a nice position. Beautiful colours and lighting. Well seen.

Hello Gloria,
Going into your gallery, I found this very moving portrait. I know these have very expressive eyes, but captured to that point is beautiful. Your wise close cropping as well as the monkey's pose and the POV bring a lot of enhancement to a very cute character. Deserves, IMO, a much better recognition!

Hello Gloria,
That's a little cutie!
Excellent portrait qualities with fine focus on the eyes...
He looks a bit sad, but maybe that impression comes from your note!
