What a superb study, Phil. You can see real character in those eyes. As I understand it, once the forest has been cleared, it can't re-establish itself, so the future does look bleak, tragically.

A beautiful close-up portrait of this intelligent species. I have read that they are our closest relative, sad that they will go extinct.

It looks quite philosophical about what is going on with its habitat. A cracking mono image.
I just came back after a bracing walk along the beach in the sunshine, but a bit windy. Not any rain so far, at noon

The weather is the same here Phil, but this puts it all in perspective. After the storm my home will hopefully still be here, that beautiful creature is gradually being robbed of his. Wonderful capture and more than worthy of this award in my view!

I find these creatures fascinating, and it would be shocking if they died out. Cracking capture Phil.

A beautiful shot Phil , also like your processing as always
Sadly there’s money to be made destroying the earth...which is of course Donald Trumps whole raison d’ętre .....I understand having to grow crops to feed ones family but the big corporations and corrupt politicians have to stop razing tropical forests for palm oil. We Humans act like we have this spare planet we can go to whenever we need,
I hope we wake up soon.
