Langoor - The gray Langoors are a group of Old World monkeys and make up the entirety of the genus Semnopithecus.

Gray Langoors are large and fairly terrestrial, inhabiting open wooded habitats and urban areas on the Indian subcontinent. Until recently they were considered one species, Semnopithecus entellus; now seven distinct species are recognized. When only one species was recognized, it was also called the Hanuman Langoor (named after the Hindu vanara divinity Hanuman), the Common Langoor and the Entellus Langoor. In Sri Lanka, it is natively known as the Wandura.

The imposing pose of the langoor just before our jeep seems like the langoor wanted to be photographed.

Hi Sujoy,

This is a nice photo of the Langoor. The outline is good because you can see the hair sticking out. It is in a good pose and it is nice you have got the shodow all into the frame. Maybe the monkey would have been better positioned on the right hand side looking into the photo rather than looking out of it.
Good capture and TFS


Hahahaa, namaste Sujoy, that's a lovely shot and I like the headline ;-)
A warm welcome here, enjoy the time.
