Photographer's Note

This monkey came to my room in Rishikesh while I was doing some Yoga. The dude took some food from my table and I felt kind of sorry for this creature, for the fact how the ecological niche of this species is so much encroached by humans. To me these apes are humans too ... :-))) .. infact more than humans as they do not play any games with ulterior motives.

Anyways I have admired (with silence) George (Polonaise's) series about "How Close can you get", and this would be contribution to the photos with that theme.

With my 17-40 mm lens, I had to get pretty close to this guy in order to take this shot. BTW, I took this photo just when the monkey guy growled at me and gave me a sign to back off. In the workshop, I will include another photo of this guy rampaging in my room for food.
