The Barbary Macaque is a gregarious monkey, forming mixed groups of several females and males; the troop of 10 to 30 individuals is matriarchal, with its hierarchy determined by lineage to the lead female. Unlike other macaques, the males participate in rearing the young; much time is spent playing and grooming with them. In this way, a strong social bond is formed between a male and his offspring, both the male's own and those of others in the troop. This may be a result of selectiveness on the part of the females, who seem to prefer highly parental males.


The mating season runs from November through March. After a gestation period of 147 to 192 days, typically one baby per female is born; twins are a rarity. The monkeys reach maturity at 3 to 4 years of age, and may live for 20 years or more.

Beautifull photo. Fantastic colors and light. Maybe the DOF is not perfect but it is already my favorite.
Thanks

Otro acierto Annick con una expresión maravillosamente captada.
El bokeh obtenido junto con un excelente aprovechamiento de la luz, generan un efecto muy bello.
El recorte de la cabeza, fue elección tuya o así era el original?
Bravo!.
Ricardo

Another success Annick with a marvelously captured expression.
The bokeh obtained together with an excellent use of the light, they generate a very beautiful effect.
The crop of the head, was your election or was the original this way?
Bravo!.

Hallo Annick , Wat een timing het is echt een poepie , prachtig die oortjes goed gedaan ,Groeten Teunie .

Hi Annick,

Very nice shot, it looks like he/she is saying "Oh No". Very shallow DOF, although the face seems to be in focus. Well done.

Hi Annick,
Well done! Very good picture, I like the pose.
Regards, Francois

I just visited you gallery Annick. What an amazing collection of expressive animal shots. That 2.8 lens seems to serve you well. We just order a Sigma 300mm prime 2.8. I've never used a 2.8 before. I hope we do as you have. It's a wonderful collection of photos.

TFS

Evelynn : )

Oops! what did he do now!?
Haha, fantastic shot! Such great timing and moment! So adorable, and it's looking into your lens as if posing and 'action-ing' for you! :) very good details and sharpness. Once again, you collection of monkeys is just fabulous!

He looks very guilty of something ??? Excellent capture. I love the warm tones.
The dof is not perfect but the focus is on the eyes and that is what pulls the viewer into the photo. And look at those big ears .A favourite for sure !
