Thank you to those who commented and voted on my last upload,always appreciated,this image is something i have wanted to try for a long time,so Louise (aka Lou Looby) and i made the trip to Monkey forest which is part of the Trentham gardens estate,for those of you who have youngsters or grandchildren then i would highly recommend a day here,seeing these Macaques is the nearest you will get to seeing wild and free Macaques as they roam in a very large area,

John.

A terrific portrait of this primate, the detail and clarity is exceptional. When I saw the thumbnail I thought this was a portrait of my Uncle Adie aka "Tomcat" taken down at Sweslhill on Saturday!WinkGrinTongue

I'm not a big fan of macaques, but this is an exceptional image regardless. Very well observed.

Super image John.
Like the lighting, almost a studio look to it.
Can't be Ade, it's too good looking.
