A close-up portrait of our very own primate, which is endemic to our Western Ghats. Yes, this is the “Lion tailed Macaque (Macaca silenus)”. This was photographed at the well known place for this species. Its from Valparai, Tamilnadu. My friends came to Pollachi for Macro Photography. After it got over, we planned for Valparai and went there. As usual we saw Nilgiri Tahr on the way and these amazing macaques on Valparai. This individual was sitting on a compound wall and I was quite close to him. Thus, tried making some close up shots of this guy. ?
