They are territorial and move in groups(called also troops).Hindus do not harm these monkeys since they are also called Hanuman Monkey,a mythological God.
Some of the trouops are so adopted to human presence and is a normal sight in many cities in India inclusding New delhi.

amazingly human family, TFS Ori

Hi Navnith
This is an amazing picture. These animals might be common but I have not seen them before and the look on the mum and infant;s face are intriguing. Well done and thanks for sharing.

Hi Navnith,
Outstanding shot of this Langur mother with its two kids. Great euye contact and I like the way the kids rotates its head to pose for you. Very neat and sharp image with nice colours and perfect lighting. The natural surrounding makes the image even more effective. Excellent POV to portray this scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Navnith,
excellent shot of the family,wonderful emotions captured.
