Another Vulnerable species from Westernghats, India.
An endemic as well. Again Habitat destruction, hunting for its fur and meat has taken it to this vulnerability. An extremely shy species and after many years of trying to get a good image, first time made some decent images this month.

D5, 500mm + 1.4xTC
ISO 1600, f8, 1/250 shutters
Valparai, Anamalai Tiger Reserve, India.

It looks like a carefully chosen perch with good support for this handsome langur to pause a while, and well done getting all of that impressive tail in frame!

Wonderful success- love the long tail and expressive face. So glad you are sharing these photos and telling their stories.
