  4. That is a resus monkey with parted hair that is available in urban areas. Langurs, lion-tailed macaque, black-faced macaque are rare and shy; try them.

    1. I looked up on Google, and found that you might be referring to Rhesus Macaque. Although their sub-species/sister-species may be found in urban areas, the one in this photo was in the wild [the background suggests]. Of course, doing their photography was easy as they were sitting roadside on a state highway that passes through a forest. Doing photography of Grey Langur is also easy as they too are most of the times found on highways passing through forests. Nilgiri Langur, Golden Langur, Lion-tailed Macaque, etc. must be extremely difficult to photograph as they are already in the list of endangered species and are found only in the core forests where humans are almost never seen. And I guess, there is nothing named black-faced macaque.

      Thanks for visiting, and commenting :)

    2. A page on Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnet_macaque suggests that this is a Bonnet Macaque.

  5. All the monkeys I see will not stay still for me. I have to chase them for my shots. Are you wearing some sort of monkey lure? I'm teasing, of course, Bhavesh...once when I aimed my camera and it flashed, I thought the monkey was going to remove it from around my neck and strangle me!

    1. Perhaps I look like them, Carmen :) And oh yes, avoid flash to keep them not surprised.
