Wow! Strange animals in Tel Aviv!
BTW I haven't seen them in Colombia but apparently they also live so much closer to Europe :)
They look beautiful and their hairs have so many different colours. What a long tails.
It looks like you could approach them quite near.
Nicely presented in a natural surrounding and very well composed.
Best regards, Paul

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Merci de nous faire connaître ces curieuses bêtes à la fourrure élégante, je ne connaissais pas, j'ai donc appris quelque chose de nouveau aujourd'hui.

nice view of the animals, a pity sunlight was very strong in the moment. looks like the animals are almost in the level of the ground.

Hi Ike,interesting specie that i never seen before,a pic for treknature too caught in a good way despite the difficult location of the couple and the hard diagonal light too,curious post,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

You had extremely strong sunlight to deal with whilst also, trying to catch these unusual animals in a good pose!
It certainly wasn't the best lighting for a photographer but you have managed to capture these two attractive animals in a lovely composition, revealing their expressions and long tails!
Their white, hairy headdresses and their very serious expressions give them the appearance of judges!!!
Have a lovely Sunday,

Fine capture of this charming duo. Good handling of the rather harsh light nicely captures the colours and textures.

These animals look marvellous. It's amazing how they could develop into this over millions of years. The light was a bit harsh but you handled it well with a good exposure. The environment looks a bit like a tropical forest, so they should be quite happy here.

The tree is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the Cotton-top-Tamarins. The good luminosity is bringing out the colours. Have a nice day.

Très content de voir que près de chez toi tu peux profiter d'un aussi beau paysage avec de jolis singes qui ne semblent pas très nerveux près des hommes. Superbe lumière.

Beautiful models, nice scene.
Good frame, colors andlight.

la coda è veramente lunga e cambia colore dove si congiunge con il corpo.
Quella a sinistra non sembra contenta di farsi fotografare...

These are cute little fellas. It must take a lot of water to create the tropical environment for them in Israel.
ChrisJ (117825) 2017-03-19 19:36
Good capture of these animals at the zoo. They look like some kind of primate and closely related to monkeys. Good sharpness and punchy light contrasts. Tfs!

Great capture of these two monkeys with their very nice, fancy hairdos and extremely long tails. The light was very bright, but you handled the exposure very well. Great work.
danos (103108) 2017-03-20 2:01
nice the view of these charmy animals with the strange name to live in this beautiful environment,with their tail to be so long.A beautiful scenery with the animals in the park.
emka (106722) 2017-03-22 23:43
How cute are these tamarins. The fern leaves give us the scale. They are really small. Nice picture from the zoo.
Have a nice day
