Bonnet Macaque

Look at the head of this monkey, doesn't it look like he is wearing a cap? Well that is why the name Bonnet. This Species of monkey is found in the wild only in India. They carry food in their cheek pouches when foraging.
Living close to human populations these monkeys are so used to humans, that this one was not even looking at me or bothered about me while I was photographing him. Hence I could easily sneak close to him for a good close up shot.
Photograph details: 1/340 sec ; f/4.5
