|This is a picture of a white-faced capuchin monkey taken at Manuel Anotonio National Park, Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is one of the smallest national parks in Costa Rica, but due to its proximity to San Jose, it is also one of the most visited. Due to the large number of tourists, many of the capuchins have lost their fear of people. This gives the tourist great opportunities to observe and photograph the monkeys, but unfortunately many tourists take advantage of this by feeding them, trying to touch them, and taking flash photographs from very short distances.|

This is a very nice capture of this capuchin in the foliage. I have been to Manuel Antonio and found that it is not always easy to capture these primates with a camera. If they are not running around the black and white contrasty pelage alone makes it difficult enough to obtain a nice exposure showing good results for both low and high registers. Well done.
