Macaque Monkeys

Macaques live in many different habitats across the globe, making them the most widely distributed genus of nonhuman primates. Their coloration includes gray, brown or black fur. They tend to be heavily built and medium to large in stature. Males and females may differ in weight, body size and canine size.

Macaques are native to Asia and Northern Africa, but thousands are housed in research facilities, zoos, wildlife or amusement parks, and are kept as pets in private homes throughout the world.

hi Les,
it's so cute!! just loved them :)
your photograph is also good regarding natural colour and framing. only the sharpness and DOF are missing. but it's okay. it couldn't affect the impact (of the mood of the subject) that much.
thanks for sharing.
