Some really different photography for me to try out on a Sunday afternoon out in Staffordshire on a visit to monkey forest at trentham gardens .
With 140 Barbary macaques to photograph its well worth a visit, be warned there really shy with photography as they tend to turn there backs but from the photos on the blog I got a few using a 200mm telephoto lens on my Nikon.
The woodland trail allows you to walk amongst the monkeys and immerse yourself in their everyday life's, the monkeys are free to roam around so photography is unhindered.

Barbary macaques, Macaca sylvanus, are large Old World monkeys found in mountainous regions of Algeria and Morocco and on Gibraltar.The population of Barbary macaques is declining and they are becoming a threatened species. Numbers are falling because the Barbary macaques are losing their habitat to human activity such as logging and overgrazing
