Langurs in a Banyan Tree

By alansnap  
Back to the animals tonight. I saw this Langur and it's fairly large baby sitting nonchalantly in a banyan tree. I love the way they blend in even to the youngsters tail. I like this version, but I also enjoy the mono take on it, so I'll put that up as a version.

Lovely capture - V1 for me - they blend in so well. Is this what they call a monkey puzzle tree?!!! (Thanks for PM)

Thanks Ju and Helen. Yep they do blend in well. I suppose it ought to be called a monkey puzzle tree, it certainly is a puzzle. Banyans have a strange way of growing with huge aerial roots which then become subsidiary trunks so the whole thing spread amazingly. I'll put a shot up to show this fantastic plant.

V1 for me, the detail and colouring blend so well. You could almost mistaken the Langurs as being "carved" from the tree.

V1 is my choice. Love the shapes and textures of the tree as well. IB
