Let’s Celebrate the Lunar Year of the Fire Monkey

恭禧发财 I wish all a happy, prosperous and healthy New Lunar Year of the Fire Monkey!

Head image: Red-shanked Douc, image created at the Singapore Zoo on 13 December 2013. Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS with Canon EF 2x Extender III.  f/5.6, 1/160s, ISO 800, +2/3 EV Evaluative metering.

A Red-shanked douc seems just perfect for the lunar year of the Fire Monkey. I’ve always found striking their colours and expression but always a challenging subject to photograph with hair brightness going from black to white. This one is for all my friends celebrating the new year.

Happy New Year!
Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Kung Hei Fat Choi!
