|A wild Long-tailed Macaques Macaca fascicularis|
They are diurnal (active during the day) and arboreal (tree-living). Long-tailed macaques are tolerant of humans and may be found near villages. They live in multi-male and multi-female groups, with an average of 2.5 females to every male in a typical troop. Troop size can range from 20-60 individuals, and these are centred around the core reproducing female. Long-tailed macaques swim well and jump into water from nearby trees. They tend to sleep in the branches of trees that overhang water, in order to avoid predators (clouded leopards and pythons). They have a fixed daily pattern of behaviour. They start their morning foraging, but stop a few hours before mid-day, to rest. During this time they may sleep, groom and play. They forage again in the afternoon, before returning to base at around 4pm. After a couple more hours of play, they climb into their sleeping trees for the night.
Did you know?
Long-tailed macaques are among the most commonly used laboratory animal, second only to the rhesus monkey. They were used extensively in studies leading to the development of the polio vaccine.

Good portrait. Good composition, sharpness and good framing. I love primate photos they are always so expressive in their facial expression.

Hi Mike, your notes are very interesting, and sad! And I can even see the sadness in this fellow's eyes.
It is a good portrait, well captured, very sharp too. Well done,
Nice pic, Mike.
It has a sad look?
I swear this image has such good clarity it feels like I can touch it for real. Your moment of capture made the best of expression.
Good work, and thanks for the info.
