Caught In The Flashlight

This monkey had the caught in the headlight look about it because I photographed him with a flash. I usually try not to use the flash with large animals but it was one of the days when I had a different configuration on my camera and I couldn't resist a monkey shot.
The troupe isn't the group that I usually see at the edge of the forest lead by a half tail male but a more aggressive troupe. I had a rather unpleasant encounter with this group before so I got the hint when one of the older monkeys charged at me. I knew better then to hang around so I backed away slowly to avoid further confrontation.
