Upper Seletar 17May17

From Con

Several of us got a real treat today to see a troupe of Raffles' Banded Leaf Monkeys (Presbytis femoralis femoralis). Backlit and high, but this image turned out pretty okay, considering it's only my second time seeing this species in Singapore and first time photographing it! This subspecies exists only in Singapore and Johor and is quite rare in Singapore. Fortunately they are well protected. You can read a bit more at these links:-
