[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mudumalai, park was created in 1940 to become the first sanctuary in southern India. The site is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve.Originally 60 square kilometres, the sanctuary was enlarged to 295 km˛ in 1956 and subsequently to its present size of 321 km˛. The sanctuary is contiguous with Bandipur National Park (874 km˛), Wynad Sanctuary (344 km˛). The Mudumalai sanctuary lies on the northern and north-western side of the Nilgiri (Blue Mountains), about 80 km north-west of Coimbatore in the extreme north-western corner of Tamil Nadu, on the interstate boundaries with Karnataka and Kerala states in southern India.

I had posted a air of Langurs a week back (with question Mark?) remember. This one was the “Boss” of the troupe in Mudumalai sanctuary in Tamilnadu. I was photographing the other Langurs in the troupe and some tourist was feeding some nuts for these monkeys. This, so called Boss came near the boy and he got scarred and went away. This one sat on a near-by stump and relaxing. I was amused to see him sitting like a Man posing for Pass port photograph. It was very funny. I have some Langurs jumping…….. For my next posting.
