Hello Ishi,
Excellent action photo of these macaques. Very beautiful natural colours, excellent sharpness, DOF, POV and composition.

Hello Ishi,
what a wonderful picture of The Rhesus Macaque taken with superb sharpness in a fantastic pose, marvellous colours in a great composition.


What a lovely image of the monkeys grooming each other. Excellent detail and good contrast of colour.


Oh! These red-bottom monkeys!
What pests they've become!
Sadly, they're so because we forced them to become pests!
A lovely shot, well timed and perfectly framed!

This is a funny image of the rhesus monkeys and well captured. I've seen some amazing documentaries on the mischievious behavior they demonstrate in the city dwellings were they co-exhist with the animal we know as humans.
