This female macaque was photographed at Kuala Selangor, Malaysia. Apart from humans, macaques are the most widespread primate in the world; therefore it is no surprise that they can be found all over Malaysia. The gaze of this particular macaque holds a fascinating and surprising depth. Non-human primates are intelligent, sentient beings with emotional responses similar to ours.
