Juvenile Sulawesi Crested Macaque.

Macaca nigra

Description for Inner Animals competition.
Why am I like this juvenile macaque? Well, I guess it’s partly because even at 29 I still act quite juvenile at times. I like my jokes and gags, practical jokes especially. Also, like the little one, I love hairing around like a loon, be it on a mountain bike, power kite, or what ever else I can find.
Behind all of this however I am hugely passionate about my photography, I like to think I put my soul into it, and just by looking into this little fella’s eyes I think you can see he has a lot of soul.
