[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta), also called the rhesus monkey, are native to northern India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Afghanistan, Vietnam, southern China, and some neighboring areas. They have the widest geographic ranges of any nonhuman primate, occupying a great diversity of altitudes throughout Central, South and Southeast Asia. Inhabiting arid, open areas, rhesus macaques may be found in grasslands, woodlands and in mountainous regions up to 2,500 m (8,200 ft) in elevation.The name "rhesus" is reminiscent of the Greek mythological king Rhęsos.

hallo Joy

Hello Joydeb,

Sharp and tender image of this baby macaque. I really like the framing incorporated within the composition with the diagonal branch and the mother's fur adding contrast to the image in the bottom right sector. Excellent light management and taken from a choice and direct pov. Well captured!

Hello Joy,
How cute this baby Macaque... look at this little hand, almost just like a human. Very well framed and presented. A very tender shot.

Namaste Joydeb da

The closed composition is so appropriate to convey the sense of security and calm this really young and tender one must feel in its mothers lap. Superb Picture.


Hello Joy
