Langur at Ranthambore


In the evening along the entrance road to the park, a troop of langurs hung out among the sere, sparse forest beneath the cliffs where friends had seen leopards, twice. I wasn't so lucky, but the langurs enjoyed an evening in peace.

Веточки такие тонкие, как они не срываются?

Now that's the correct use of the term, 'hanging out'.

RR,
I couldn't have put it better. Or as well, but that was the thought in my head.

That is one of the best images you have revealed to us, Pete. Great composition, beautiful light, wonderful use of color, and elegant and, the word that comes to mind, "wise" in a delicate way. Really love this one.
