Hi everybody
It feels so good to be back after about one month.I
was in Iran & mostly tried to practiced architecture,I'll going to upload some of them on TE.
I got this one 2 days back in Nandini Hills.
Here are some information about these monkies :

Scientific classification
Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Chordata

Class: Mammalia

Order: Primates

Family: Cercopithecidae

Subfamily: Cercopithecinae

Genus: Macaca


Aside from humans (genus Homo), the macaques are the most widespread primate genus, ranging from northern Africa to Japan. Twenty-two macaque species are currently recognised, and they include some of the monkeys best known to non-zoologists, such as the Rhesus Macaque (as the Rhesus Monkey), Macaca mulatta, and the Barbary Macaque (as the Barbary Ape), M. sylvanus, a colony of which lives on the Rock of Gibraltar. Although several species lack tails, and their common names therefore refer to them as apes, these are true monkeys, with no greater relationship to the true apes than any other Old World monkeys.
These was from Wikipedia website.

Hello Behrad,
The beautiful colours of this tempted me to have a closer look and it is really sharp and a great composition too.
TFS, Ulla

Salam behrad
Very nice shot of macaqes,
Perfect focuisng and composition,


The picture is a wee bit dark, IMHO, Behrad. Other than that, it is a well seen and well composed picture of these monkeys seemingly at ease with their environment around Bangalore.
Why are we seeing less of you these days? Busy with studies or what? Oh, I see; you had gone back to Iran. So welcome back.
Take care.

Hello Behrad,
Lovely capture.POV,colors,contrast,moment you caught and composition are wonderful.Excellent work!

Hello Behrad,

This is a wonderful capture of an intimate moment.

I love those details, POV, lightning and composition. You caught a really nice moment as they look like sharing a secret or a confidence. Thanks for this nice one,

Salut Behrad
Félicitation pour cette belle prise de vue qui semble être un moment de tendresse entre ces deux macaques. La présentation est très belle ainsi que les couleurs et les détails.
Merci et au revoir...JP
