What a nice face! He is so close... I agree that he has great eyes, wow! Details are very, very sharp. I'm always amazed by this human expression those animal have in their eyes. It is like we could read their thoughts. Well done again! Thanks,

what a personality you have taking here with excellent skills of portrait photography! I love the soft hues of colours, the pose, the approach, the very clear eyes. Top quality animal photography reminding us that the latin derived word "animal" contains the word "anima" that means "soul".
Thank you my friend, and best regards,

I like this bearded guy; he looks so much like us humans, especially in terms of the brooding expression on his face. Must be thinking of ways and means to become an alpha male, I guess!
I admire the way you have focused on its expressive eyes. That is the most beautiful aspect of this great portrait.
Thanks and take care.

Nice portrait picture of this macaque. Good POV, very sharp, well done.
A great detailed portrait, looks like someone I once knew. The whiskers remind me of Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria, haha. I've seen these guys on TV a while ago in 'The Amazing Race' being fed in front of the temples.

Oooh... those eyes... and that mouth...
I don't trust that one, Radu.
Very sharp details and excellent exposure.
I like the close-up crop. Very effective and intimidating.
TFS. : )
