[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken on Monkey island just off the coast of Hainan.

My friend pointed out this sleeping monkey. I managed to get a few pictures of him before some loud tourists woke him up!

Please tell me what you think.

You have handled this shot well. It is not always easy getting detail like you have in the monkey when shooting into the light. I suspect you used fill flash? If so, it has been done well as it is not overly obvious. I like the composition which includes all of the monkey, including the tail. My first impression was how huge it's feet are and the expression of contentment and bliss. Very cute!

That is one ridiculous-looking monkey. Excellent subject.
