I find his posture quite humanoid, almost unsettling actually, Planet of The Apes unsettling. Lovely capture Clement. Another critically endangered species, I'm starting to see a trend I think.

An amazing human-like pose- beautifully captured. It almost feels like the Langur is making an appeal for it's salvation (though I know it's not, really). But the PHOTO is certainly an appeal, and very effective.

Superb image, Clement!  Its not only the very 'human-like' pose, but the face is not too far removed from some present day humans I have known..... :wink:   Seriously though, its a very poignant message about the dangers to many wild species that suffer by encroaching human populations and disregard for the shrinking habitats.
