Many thanks for your expressions of appreciation on “This IS My Good Smile”, for which I’m very grateful! During my trip to the UK last month, while my main focus for photography was on felines, I was more than happy spending time with a number of primate species, some of whom I’d only ever seen pictures of before. This first one I’m sharing with you today is a Lion-Tailed Macaque (aka Wanderoo), a male I believe, one of a large troop at Howletts Wildlife Park in Kent. Although they seem to be doing well in captivity, Lion-Tailed Macaque are listed as Endangered (EN) in their natural habitat of the Western Ghats of Southern India. Primate-lover in general though I may be, I have to admit that macaques (as well as baboons and chimpanzees) are far from my favourites, as they appear to be the most naturally aggressive and all too often display negative characteristics that, for me, disturbingly mirror some of the worst traits of mankind. Character flaws aside, I do love the look of these Lion-Tailed Macaques and, as with most primates, they also seem to offer up engaging expressions, so they’re not all bad I guess! In case anyone is wondering, the title for this picture sprung to mind due to the situation of the hands; made me immediately think of the three monkeys of “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”, this could be the lost fourth monkey ;^) Thanks for your time and hope you’re all enjoying a fantastic week :^) Website | Fine Art America | Facebook
RIOX – Após proibir a circulação de vans na Zona Sul, o prefeito Eduardo Paes abriu uma licitação para controlar o tráfego carioca. “A prefeitura gastou R$ 34 milhões para reequipar todos os veículos com ar condicionado, instalar bancos de couro e painéis de LED para entreter os passageiros. Ficaremos responsáveis também por problemas mecânicos”, assegurou o prefeito. Em seguida, informou que as empresas interessadas terão que desembolsar pelo menos R$ 15 por ano. “Os investimentos têm que retornar aos cofres públicos. Aceitamos vale-transporte”, reiterou o prefeito.
