I had a wonderful trip to Bandipur forest last week. On the first day while waiting for the Safari to start, I saw this monkey plucking every flower & taking a sip of nectar !!.. It is amazing that these monkeys have learnt to find a good taste in their life.

Hi Sharma,
Amazing capture and timing, the emotion is captured pretty exquisitely.
good sharpness, POV and lighting.

Hello Sharma,
Extraordinary image especially content wise but also technical.
Concerning the latter: very sharp, well applied DOF and POV...
Can't wait to see more similar images...

Hi Sharma. The detail if the fur is first class. The look on his face is excellent. very natural colours. you have used the light so well. excellent shot alround. very well done TFS.

Hello Sharma,
lovely picture. I like it very much. Very good framing, sharpness, details and very nice colours. This is a very good composition. Thank you.

This is a super shot on several levels. The subject is wonderful and really eye-catching. It has the "ahhhh" factor : )
Techinically it is excellent. This made me smile as I remember as kids we would do exactly the same thing to similar flowers.

Very good pic Sharmaji. Sharp, good POV and composition.

TFS, Kiran
