The monkey I saw most often on my trip was the macaque. Long-tailed macaques are not shy (although sometimes aggressive; be careful!) and that made for some wonderful closeup photos like at Ulu Watu, and this one (below) from Bako National Park in Malaysian Borneo.
Another photographer said this wildlife shot of a macaque should be the next cover of Lonely Planet Borneo – perhaps! I need to thank the photogenic monkeys that were so kind to pose for me.
[yes the correct pronunciation is actually Muh-kok. Giggle.]
It wasn’t the first time seeing wildlife in my trip – the baby orangutans, baby elephants, and baby monkeys (macaques) in Borneo were adorable! I also saw other types of animals up close – camels, tarsiers, proboscis monkeys, sharks, pythons, and more!
