[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
hello everyone.....this photo is taken at a Malay village in Pasir Mas, Kelantan.

this baby monkey is the pet of a family who trains monkeys to climb fruit trees (coconut/rambutan etc.), pluck the fruits and then return to the owner.....that is how the owner earns his living.

he is a funny fellow....trying to do stunts and lots of sounds to capture passer bys.

hope u guys like it.

Beautiful photo!
Great moment you have captured. Itīs fantastic. Congratulations !

This is almost tragic. This guy should be an actor.
Too bad you mentioned it's a pet, now it will be removed from this site...

This image is strong but by no means it ilustrates what you say about it. To me looks like a desperate fight to free himself, the neck strap seems pretty darn tight too, like is choking him. Its not a pretty sight but its a good image and I like it for what is worth. You cant convince me this monkey is happy, however.

Hello Eleen,
An awesome pose... Simply great!
What did you do to get a response like that..?
Nice composition with some pleasant diagonals... Good colours and details, great texture in the fur..!
