I'm not an 'animal pics' person generally but your images see more, and make me want to know more. This series is providing a very valuable picture of a parallel culture to ours, and the picture is building up cumulatively. So whatever you decide to upload next, these recent uploads have benefitted from being placed together in a bloc.

If the quality of the images are good, and yours are, I see no reason why you should not post them.
As Moira has pointed out - it is a great education tool for the rest of the world seeing images of wild animals, especially some that we may not even consider as endangered. - Great Shot would love to see a Mono version - Andy

It is really an award winning series Ron and I am so surprised you haven't picked at least one HC/EC yet.

I have awarded you my UA for your "together" image.

Such intensity and clarity of gaze Ron. Superb shot, these would make a compelling book. I'm are enjoying this series very much indeed. So it's up to you..... I await with baited breath the rest of Japan though. (Say Hi to your beloved for me!)

Watcha Ron,
good crop but I prefer the portrait. I'm wondering if the great Japanese artist, Hokusai, ever went and drew these, often his sketch book drawings of people at work display simian characteristics.

I agree, but, Pete so often looks at pics with his eyes closed, even his own, that often deserve editor awardsSmile

They are all excellent pics, and look good in a set; however, I think I would have preferred to see them as variants, on several uploads, they could have then been seen more as if on a gallery wall where the viewer can, easily, swap from one pic to another?

It is so true, the eyes say so much. I love this portrait, love the crop and almost forget it is a primate. ............Sandy

I love these images too. They are slightly unsettling because they make me feel a great empathy with these relations(?).
