    Pig-Tailed Macaque

    I hope you're not all getting too sick of my holiday snaps yet!

    Here's a shot of a pig-tailed macaque. The other one I posted was a long-tailed macaque. These monkeys are a little bit more aggressive, as you can tell by the look in is eyes! Fortunately we were on a boat so he couldn't attack us!

    Nikon D90 | Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR | 270mm | f/5.6 | 1/200 | ISO 250

    Awesome shot... and menacing! The way you framed the shot with less headroom seems to compliment the monkey's stance, Tommy. The shot looks really very alive with all those details on the furs. Well done.

    You could count every individual hair on the fur. Wonderfully clear and sharp. And ... what an expression.
