[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A hanuman langur (Semnopithecus entellus), of the tufted southern race, from the Kalakad-Mundanthurai Tiger Reserve, South India. This particular troop is highly habituated to humans and are sometimes fed with leftovers by people - an unusual behavior for a largely folivorous (leaf eating) monkey. They also share this human space with troops of bonnet macaques and interbreeding is known to occur between the species over here.

Hi Ravi

Lovely profile shot. The DoF is excellent giving an excellent OOF BG (Out of focus background). :-)

Hi Ravi. Nice portrait of this monkey. Perfectly focused, excellent sharpness, natural colors. Regards, Yvonne

Hallo Ravi
What a lovely shot. Clear, sharp and a well composed image. I have never tried to photograph a black and white animal or bird as I have heard that it is difficult to get the right construction and details in the whites and blacks. You perfectly succeeded in getting the right balance. A well focused and clear shot. Thanks for sharing
Kind regards
