Monkeys, Macritchie Reservoir

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos

This is a family of monkeys that I came across during my hike in Macritchie Reservoir, Singapore. The two adults were helping each other to extract ticks from their body, while a baby made its way up the branch to its mother arms.
