A New Friday Tradition

Since an increasingly large part of my job is now photo research [we can’t afford to commission as many new illustrations as we used to and photos are cheaper, hence the change in emphasis], and since so much of what I find never actually makes the final edit, I think I may institute a new regular post on Fridays in order to regale you with some of the beauties I’ve found during the preceding week.

Such as this fellow. The long-tailed macaque of Borneo. One can’t help but feel that whoever named this species missed the point, somewhat.

    He should grow a pair.

      One wonders if this is the ‘alpha’ male of the group, or if there is, in fact, an even more ‘alpha’ specimen out there, somewhere – with a less forlorn look on his face, perhaps?

  2. Umm.. Say, do you suppose that specimen represents the male of the species?

  3. piereth says:

    I think he related, evolutionarily speaking, to Bendydog. When he runs, he practically gives himself a black eye.

  4. He is looking forlorn simply because he knows he cannot ever play cricket! They don’t make “protective equipment” large enough!

    • Norwichrocks says:

      Well, he’s certainly not English, in which case he shouldn’t bother trying to play cricket since we’ve decided to play it properly again now… 😉

  5. OmbudsBen says:

    He could make a good gambler. Or a good sheriff. Or anything else that requires large cojones.

    • Norwichrocks says:

      Perhaps he’s a fire department monkey. That certainly takes cojones. If its not burning to a crisp over here its flash-flooding and either way, the ‘fireys’ get the brunt of it.

  6. It’s the look of patient resignation that really makes this.
