The Stare

By GillyB    
So after the cute little ducklings at Chester Zoo I turned the camera on some serious subjects, amongst them were these macaques.

" Sulawesi crested macaque, or the black ape, is an Old World monkey that lives in the Tangkoko reserve, northeast of the Indonesian island of Sulawesi".

Many thanks for the c's and v's on the aforementioned duckling and special thanks go to Peter, Joan, Andy and Lin who kindly gave their awards.

Also thank you for taking the time to 'stare back' at this one.

Superb image Gill. You've captured it in such a way that it looks natural, and not captive. Very well done.SmileSmile
