[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Spider Monkeys are diurnal, which means that they are mostly active in the daytime. They live mainly in groups in the treetops and rarely come to the ground. Naturally social and active, the Spider Monkey wants lots of play and exercise in addition to company. The Spider Monkey is equipped with a prehensile tail and hands, making it easy for him to be at home in the treetops.
At the Safari park they live on an island equipped with plenty of branches and ropes to play.

Photo taken at the African Lion Safari park in southern Ontario.

Salut Sky
Ce seinge araigné est vraiment fantastique,la composition est très jolie. Le détail est irréprochable.
Merci et au revoir...JP

Hello Sky,
Interesting to see this spider monkey which equip with arms,legs,tail,fingers that fit for living on tree top. Well done and seen picture. TFS.

Hello Sky,
Nice capture of this strange little fellow!
Good side light makes him stand out even if the background is the same colour as the fur coat...
Nice lines in the composition, good details!
Pablo -

This is an amzing capture, Sky. The spider monkey is poised for some action and you have got it at the most opportune moment for this wonderful shot. The angle of light couldn't be better and its effect on the composition is magical.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Sky

A very cute little fellow.The arms and legs are so long for such a little body.Nicely composed shot,with very nice lighting and good focus and detail.You had an amazing safari...did you run out of memory card space? Looks like you had an awesome time.TFS


Hi Sky,
This guy is really equipped for the tree tops with those long arms, finger, legs, and tail. Well shown in this shot. A good exposure has colors and detail looking good.

Great movement shot. Amazing photo, sharpness and colours are really great.

Hello Sky,
This is a very nice shot of this unusual monkey :) I love the pose you caught and details are really good. Well seen and well done with nice colors and exposure. Thanks,

Hi Sky,
Nice to view this little hairy friend. Nicely captured. Well composed. It was unfortunate that its colors are very similar to those of wooden wall, but it could be overcame if shallower DoF was apllied.
Nice shot.
