  1. Absolutely beautiful, this one really has a pro feel to it! Posted 7 years ago
  2. I was doing a series of images consisting of monkey and human portraits side-by-side to highlight the similarities. However, the project never quite panned out, but this was one of the images. :) Posted 7 years ago

The bonnet macaque is a macaque endemic to southern India. Its distribution is limited by the Indian Ocean on three sides and the Godavari and Tapti Rivers along with a related competing species of rhesus macaque in the north. Land use changes in last few decades have resulted in changes in its distribution boundaries with the rhesus macaque, raising concern for its status in the wild.
