Chase Allen  I hope this is in focus. I shoot a variety of photos, from nature and wildlife, to automotive!! All photos are originals. Rights Reserved.

This adorable little fella is a Dusky-Leaf Monkey!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also called the Spectacled Langur, they get their name from the white circles surrounding their eyes which give the appearance of spectacles. The placement of their eyes on their heads gives these Langurs a unique sense of depth in their environment and allows them to navigate through densely wooded areas, ducking, dodging, and weaving through the branches extremely quickly! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This colorful creature, exclusive to Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia is a Red-Shanked Douc!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The red-shanked douc will move noisily from branch-to-branch through the forest, crashing through foliage, swinging under branches and leaping - sending it 20+ feet, fully committed into landing on the next tree. They’re quite a playful and communicative species - barking, growling, chirping, and squealing to let you know how they feel!

Male proboscis monkeys are an odd looking bunch - known for their large nose, which can exceed 4” (10.2cm) in length, and hangs lower than the mouth.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Less talked about, but still hard to miss is their... erm, other appendage... Males have a permanently erect red penis!

This is a Lar Gibbon! This fella had come down from the treetop to score some fruit near the riverbank of the Mekong. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lar Gibbons like to stay high up in the canopy of trees. Their incredibly long arms allow them to swing effortlessly among the tree branches. Gibbons are among the fastest of all primates, and can change direction in fractions of a second, allowing them to catch birds in midair and eat them after landing. They’ll leap up to 40ft from tree to tree, clearing rivers and openings in the rainforest.

Two macaques sit perched atop a Hindu temple in the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud, Bali grooming each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Social grooming is a major social activity for primates, and a means by which these animals bond and reinforce social structures, family links, and build companionships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This is a Celebs Crested Macaque - recently made internet famous by a photographer who had one of these ape-like monkeys shoot a “selfie” of itself on his camera. Although copy write issues arose from that photo, and the photographer lost a lot of money, he did accomplish one goal - bringing attention to this critically endangered species.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Locals in Indonesia consider the meat a delicacy, and even though they are critically endangered, they are often hunted down, and killed. A conservation program called Selamatkan Yaki - or "Save the Yaki" has been founded to help raise awareness and work with zoos across Thailand, Germany, and the US to help with breeding programs.

Moms are the best - they help shape and prepare you to survive this crazy world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Young Proboscis Monkeys are cared for not just by their mother but also by the other adult females in the troop, and will remain with their mother until they are nearly a year old.

Orangutans are born with an ability to reason and think. They are one of humankind's closest relatives, sharing nearly 97% of the same DNA. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Capturing this on camera was one of my favorite moments in Borneo. Coming out of my hut in the jungle to meet this young female orangutan trying to hide from the rain. She was quite clever - I watched her as she tried to craft a homemade umbrella out of leaves, fail, then decide to just play in it.

Your favorite series is up, Primates!!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This little guy is a juvenile Crab-Eating Macaque. They’re quite playful and spend time in familial groups. Mother Macaques will preferentially give food to their children, behaving according to the kin selection theory, a common trait among a lot of animals. Unique to the Crab-Eating Macaques though is that they’ll also act spiteful toward one another - holding out with food against those they dislike. If you help them, they’ll like you, if not, they’ll hold a grudge!! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Crimson and Olive-Backed Sunbirds of Indonesia!!⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
(Swipe to see more)

Sunbirds have long thin down-curved bills and brush-tipped tubular tongues, both adaptations to their nectar feeding. Sunbirds are quite similar to hummingbirds in that they flap their wings incredibly fast so they can hover and feed - up to 80 times a second!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The blue peafowl - found around the Bay of Bengal, from India over to Thailand. ⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
The beautiful iridescence found in their plumage is the result of structural coloration. Nano-scale barbules cause optical interference Bragg reflections, the slight variation in distance between the barbules are what cause the vibrant colors you see!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This isn’t a bird, but you can still find them flying around in the jungles of South East Asia! ⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀
These ladies and gents go by several names - fruit bats, mega bats, flying foxes, etc. - whatever you call them though, they are a unique animal! They are the largest flying mammals in the world, with a wing span up to 5ft! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
