There are a lot in India. Nature and people collide all over the country and like the raccoons of Canada, monkeys clamber amongst the sprawling population.

I love shooting monkeys, they are so interesting to watch. Config: Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 28-300mm f/2.8 USM.

This group of families was at the entrance to a park as we travelled to a wildlife sanctuary.

They are such an intimate species. Clustered together, jumping, playing, taking care of each other.

As I watched this young man came out of the back of a building. It caused quite the racket as they obviously knew what he was about to do.

He smiled the entire time, feeding the group.

  1. I’m not sure where you were in India, but where I’m from monkeys are not too well-loved! Little rascals. They took the headlights off my dad’s car once.
