17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Surprise

The photo shows a black crested macaque in an exotic background, precisely in Tangkoko, a reserve in Indonesia. The macaque look surprised, and to be honest, I was surprised too, in fact it wasn't my intention to photograph it, i was framing another macaque much further, it just popped up on the frame and I got lucky to catch it in the right spot at the right time.
