Carrying the baton from the previous blog EXPOSED ON A LIMB, am sharing these lovely pictures of a group of Himalayan Langurs spotted on a Mighty Oak.

Be charmed or should I say Enchanted.

The Himalayan Langur ( Scientific name Semnopithecus ajax ) is significantly Larger when compared to the Langur we see in the Plains of India.

It is also called the Dark-Eyed Himalayan Langur.

The Endless Tail is a key characteristic of these very intriguing Monkeys.

The Mighty Oaks  ( Scientific name Quercus leucotrichophora) provide a safe Haven to these Gorgeous Langurs as well numerous other species.

Observe the Upper and Lower Sides of the leaves don a different hue of Green.

  1. This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I am reading Ruskin Bond’s short stories, one of which, called The Monkeys, tells an intriguing tale of a bunch of Langurs visiting the Himalayan Oaks every now and then. These interesting images help bring the story to life.
    Your blog is refreshing and informative.
