I love the Indian Monkey. The are perfect in stealing food. This one is from Munnar hills.
It was very clever in stealing sweet things and other reachable items from road shops and keep the shopkeepers very busy.
This one is sitting on one of these read shops waiting for best opportunity to steal something eatable.

I like these amazing animals too. Very nice portrait, good exposure, perfect sharpness,
I remember we have had funny meeting with them in Goa, near Dudhsagar falls.
Best wishes from Russia!

Beautiful little creature and a fine portrait of him too, you have captured that cheeky glance of his very well, i can see the mischief in his face. I imagine it is good fun to watch them go about their stealing, but maybe not so for the shop owners :)

I like very much this portrait of a mischievous monkey figuring out his next move. The shop owners surely consider him a pest but here he is just the intriguing hero of your lovely photo. You've captured superb texture and natural tones on his fur, his body looks agile and alert and, after reading your note, his expression has become meaningful too. It would be good to see his hands and feet too but in this composition it's the expression and the glint in his eyes that captivate our interest. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

And he manages to look very uninterested (like a human trying to hide what he was going to steal), great capture well focused in the cute monkey and eyes
Well done, greetings

A fine addition to the series, and a great follow-up to the previous. This has been a fun, interesting, and well documented set of images. I absolutely love the expression on this one, looking exactly as you've describe...anxiously awaiting the right moment to grab a treat. :) The slight upwards stare lets us know he's got his mind on something other than your camera, and once again making for a spontaneous and "real life" moment captured. Excellent! Have a great day ahead.

Another portrait to the beautiful monkey, Miro.
Human look on his face. Fantastic clear photo, as every hair on his fur shine in the good daylight around. Absolutely fantastic take.
Have a nice weekend,

Another fine wildlife shot, I like the slight softness gives this an almost painterly feel. The expression is priceless and the cheekiness - he could almost be saying pardon me!! A great record shot of this clever animal and his natural behaviour, the bg diffuse soft lighting is good enhancing the contrast so well. The immaculate details you manged to retained in appreciated. Great shot, Congrats.

Awesome portrait of this monkey, and animals even human being will do anything just to survive as attested to what's going in my old country, the Philippines, after a terrible storm. Nice capture with good details. Well done, tfs.

Well, I would not approve of thievery, but that is one cute monkey. I love your selective focus, being able to see single strands of hair agains the blurred background is a real treat.
