Long Tailed Macaque Monkey Photos


The long tailed Macaque are the closest to the definition of cheeky monkeys. We passed by them in a little branch of the main river and got real close for some nice shots. Just like the Orang Utans they were chilling out eating some fruit and there were about 15-20 of them in a close proximity to our boat.

This first one was sitting quite close to our boat so managed to get a good shot:

This little fella was very curious, coming very close to the boat. Its a long tailed Macaque. Click the image to get a much better view.

This second Macaque is just chilling out in the tree, putting his (or her) legs up and checking out the visitors (notice the comfy position of the legs and arms). Again I managed to get quite close thanks to the experience of our guide.

I used the 70-200mm lens for all the monkey shots. Generally some cropping was required when the subjects were far away, but in this instance a minimal amount was required, which I’m quite pleased with. I’m aiming to put up some photos of Mount Kinabalu plus a sunset next – a little monkey break…
