I thought I post another shot of the Howler monkeys.

As the previous post, this is taken on the Hotel grounds.
A group of about 18 Howler monkeys visited area and enjoyed the fresh leafs of this tree.

Hi Sky , this is a very cute monkey , and a very nice photo , the details in the blacks came out quite nice for sitting against that light sky.



Seems like a curious tyke. Lovely composition, and also I like the texture of the fur and the natural setting - just as it should be.

Hi Sky,
Great shot of this monkey in a very interesting pose and actually looking into the lense. Great work on the OOF BG and colors.

Hi Sky, perfect pose on this guy hanging in the tree. The composition with him hanging like this works well with the frame filling shot. Colour is good with good detail on the monkey. Very effective use of your depth of field in muting down the background, yet keeping the shot, "natural" looking.

Thanks, John
