    Oh My Goodness – this is super super – I am so excited about this image Robert, its just awesome. I have seen some pretty brilliant images of these primates, but non as powerful as this. This is just awesome. Do you mind if I link back to this shot?

    I think I should suggest to RB that we are allowed to fav things more than once – I could just sit here all night looking at this [must save the pennies for this one]

    Thanks everyone…when I was there, I was stressed that I didn’t get a good shot…It aint easy as they’re always moving around..but you could spend a whole day there..In fact I met a lady photographer who spent a whole week there!!…I was wrapped when I got to check my shots that I’d manage to capture one of the best shots of my life…thanks again, cheers, Rob.
    ps, of course Julie, link away!!..
