All alone .....

By colmar  
Good Afternoon ,

In a mixed cage of small monkeys this little guy was lying on an elevated wooden stand his little head just over the edge , he looked so sad .... Mari could not help but photograph him and then stand there "chatting" for ages !

Sad eyes indeed, love his expression captured. These do chat away. The ones in a wildlife park near us do the same thing. Super shot.
