A holy rhesus individual (Macaca mulatta) called also bandar seen in Swayambunath, a buddist sacred stupa located on a hill of Kathmandu suburbs. A group of primate lives in this temple. According to Nepalese mythology, while the entire Kathmandu valley was once with an enormous lake, a lotus flower grew on this singular hill who rising above the waters. The water drained out of the lake, leaving the valley in which Kathmandu now lies. The lotus was transformed into a hill and the flower become the Swayambhunath stupa.

un soggetto grazioso e molto interessante per l'inserimento intelligente in una bella composizione nella quale il colore ha una parte fondamentale.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Hi Miguel ,
Nice shot of this local breed of monkey who has a very mischievous look about him. Nice warm colours in both the monkey and the very ornate carvings on the background . Nice job Miguel.
All the best.

A little bit of motion blur is evident but these macaques are fast moving! Good sharpness elsewhere and nice repetition of the intricate patterns and designs of the temple. The prayer wheels and Buddha statues at left are a good addition. Tfs!

I visited this temple more than 40 years ago. Not much seems to have changed since then, even the monkeys look the same :-).
A very nice and well timed photo with fine colours and sharpness.

Lovely little animal, and presented against a very beautiful backdrop too. Although I would stop short of describing this animal as cute, as something in his eyes looks like he could be quite vicious under the right circumstances.
Love your note too, a beautiful legend to go with your capture.
All the best

a very interesting picture, the bandar and the magnificent antique wall bestow interest to each other and their chromatic harmony is impressive. I like the bandar's direct glance and frozen movement, it's like your presence and lens have interrupted his walk. There's spontaneity and timelessness in your capture, you've rendered both aspects really well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

Good morning Miguel,
This monkey came along curious to see what you were up to, on his guarding-mission in the shrine.
Well captured him with elements of the sacred place as a backdrop's.
Nice taken the moment,
