[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the tarsier, one of the smallest primates (prosimian primates) in the world. This is found in the Philippines particularly on the island of Bohol in central Philippines as well as neighboring islands of Leyte and Samar and parts of Mindanao. It is very small, it can curl up into a ball and fit into a large man's hand.

Not much post-processing except adjustment of saturation.
