This is just a normal monkey... hmm.. i cant find any informations, or the exact informations about this monkey. If anyone is fammiliar and know details information about this monkey please let me know, and i will include it in my notes.

Ok, the photo was taken near the "Monkey Hill", Penang. The hill is famously known as Monkey Hill because lots of monkeys there.. haha..

And while i was walking around, I found out this monkey, sitting on this black pole, enjoying the nice scenenary.. so i just walk slowly and get a little bit closer, just below him, and took his photo down. hehehe..

I cropped the photo, adjusted curve and added borders.

That is a great shot of the monkey. The colors and composition are good. Great expression on his face.
I think it is a rhesus monkey. "They have given their name to the rhesus antigens found in their blood in 1940, which has enabled doctors to determine different blood groups in humans. Rhesus monkeys were also the first primates to be rocketed into space." (http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/wildfacts). They are very common in Southeast Asia.

Good monkey portrait. Looking up at him gives a good POV. These guys tend to run away pretty quick so getting a settled one like this is good to see.
