There were loads of Snow Monkeys (Japanese Macaques) at The Highland Wildlife Park in Scotland and loads of people watching them, yet this particular Snow Monkey kept his eyes fixed firmly on ‘me’ for ages! I now find, when I look into those beautiful eyes, it’s hard to pull away, they seem to draw me in somehow…….. really uncanny.

Thank you to everyone for your clicks and comments on my Loch Leven yesterday, always appreciated.

Stunning capture, The eye's are amazing! We have been all been walking around the room at work looking at it because it's one of those 'eye's follow you' pictures!
