The Bonnet Macaque (Macaca radiata) is a macaque living in India. This Old World monkey is a diurnal animal.It can live more than 30 years.

The Bonnet Macaque feeds on fruits, nuts, seeds, flowers, invertebrates and cereals.Two subspecies of Bonnet Macaques have been identified: Macaca radiata radiata and Macaca radiata diluta.

There were many Monkeays on the out skirts of Bandipur Forest, in Karnataka. People going to Ooty, an hill station, stop over near these monkeays and feed them with biscuits, ground nuts and other eatabales. These are wild monkeays and should never be fed. When our car went close and these monkeays came to us asking for food. Since we didnot give them, this mother was more caring of its baby, when my friend went down from the car. It grabbed the playful baby and gave it a hug,and I could really see the mothers caring feeling towards its baby,it was no less than the homo sapiens feelings. I was bold by that incident

What a tender and beautiful shot, Satish!
Excellent sharpness, focus, framing and composition!
I like it a lot.
Congratulations and TFS.

Hi Satish
Nice family shot with good colours & details, beautiful expression on monkeys face.

Great details and wonderful composition. I like the feel that film gives to the picture as well.



I love the look on the kid's eye. The eye contact from innocent eyes is very appealing.

Satish, Wonderful for a moment I thought this is the shot which we took while we came out of Bannerghatta park. But this one is different and better color than the one. What happened to that picture. Lovely this one and from your camera it is really beauty.
