036/365 Long-tailed Macaque, Macaca fascicularis

If you are not too bored of the Borneo theme, I’d like to continue with image 036, which is of a Long-tailed Macaque.  These were drinking from a river as we edged closer in a low sided boat allowing me to get this low viewpoint of this one preening.  I really like the way the light is highlighting the eyes in this.  With Borneo, the light can be very dark but most of the time it is very dappled as it squeezes through the gaps in the dense vegetation.  Wait until the subject gets in the correct position and then press the shutter. Sounds easy doesnt it! 😉
