photographing and learning about wildlife
This photo was taken in Emei Shan National Park in Sichuan, China. This is a world heritage site and the Chinese Government has put this primate under strict protections. Since this is a Chinese National Park it receives an enormous volume of visitors per year. Therefore, the monkeys have lost most of their wild instincts and steal from people for food. It is quite sad to see such a majestic animal become a thief but if this means the survival of the species then it is for the best.
