[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This imature male made the mistake of fighting the older dominant male in his group and was severely bitten with the razor sharp teeth. Consequently he is in recovery mode before before released back to the jungle.

By the way i strongly dislike animals being caged but this place is a half way house and they are cared for then released.

Hello Murray,
This image would be a great deterent for anyone who has fighting in their blood. It also makes me see myself as the recession as stymied many people here in the States and elsewwhere from enjoying what we would usually enjoy doing.
Those mysterious eyes with this youngster shows a lot of life, and fight.
Great shot...

Hola me he permitido hacer un trabajo sobre la imagen espero no le moleste
un saludo
PD - ya no tengo puntos

How can anyone not recognise the evolutionary link between us and these guys - not just in physical characteristics, but our motivations to improve our status in society - and the risks involved ...

A poignant expression but let down, as I'm sure you know, by the 1/30s shutter speed taking away the sharpness of the shot. Raising the ISO to 400 or opening the aperture a stop could've made all the difference.


hi there,

i just love this intelligent creature. i believe they are more tamed compared to chimps. can't say much about the expression (they always look this innocent). 1/30sec at 320mm fl, u really trusted ur hands. composition is good, quite balanced


Hello Murray

I like the image itself, just hate to see animals and cages. A very good portrait.
