To discover forms in surroundings where none exist( for us) is a rare talent that you possess and this has been aptly presented in this image. I am for the colored version.

Almost like a little ape waiting for something interesting to start. I like the mottling of the bark with its yellow tone.

Great Shot!

The "another version" makes more sense!

Looks like an ape exactly! Both are very good and very original!

You're obviously on very good terms with the gods of nature and they pose for you beautifully. This fellow sems quite curious about the whole affair. I search for the little gods myself but they seldom show themselves to me so clearly as they do to you.

ps: the colored version.

Thank you very much ,indeed, for your valuable feedback.Photography has given me a new lease of life and taught me how to look around in the ordinary to find the extra-ordinary.

Sometimes there are not enough superlatives to describe the 'caprioles of nature' - as in this case... Compliments Amal, fantastic photographed and presented - both versions.

Tiny face

Tiny Face

Ditto all the wonderful comments and insight above. But there's one more thing: there's a tiny face above the monkey's mouth. Very strange indeed.

Cheers ~
