Out of the darkness

By morpheus1955  
Another from Marwell Zoo, this Tamarin monkey was hiding right at the back of his / her enclosure. To be totally honest I had forgotten to change the settings on my camera and had actually intended to use flash, so I was totally surprised to get anything SmileSmileSmile Anyway I sure this will not be to everyone's taste but for me it has something, a happy accident I guess you could call it Smile

Thank you all so much for all your C&C's very much appreciated

Thanks for taking the time to look

I know this little guy, Hugh. Your shot makes him look more mysterious than he really is. Great!

These 'happy accidents' do result in some great shots! I like this! It adds mystery! Smile

Yes, the golden hue is interesting.. You should have quizzed to see if anyone could guess what it was.
I might have cropped some of the bottom black..Wink

I think this is sooo much better than it would likely have been with the flash. A happy accident perhaps, but also a really good photo.

Looks like a Golden Lion Tamarin (aka Golden Marmoset), and a lovely sumptuous gold against the blacks it is too.

Works for me, monkey peering out of the darkness. Also makes a good minimal abstract. Play about with the cropping, see if you find anything you prefer.
