A Baby Northern Pig-tailed Macaque (Macaca leonina) looks out of the trees, Erawan Falls, Thailand.
This baby Macaque was very timid when I spotted him, hiding high up in the trees just off the beaten track at Erawan falls in Northern Thailand. I quickly grabbed my camera and took my shot as soon as possible, knowing the chance to photograph him like this would probably be gone very quickly. Thankfully he didn't spot me and I was able to snap him whilst he was busy engaged on his mothers movements slightly below.
