Monkey Trapeze

 
A Swinging Time, by Thomas Vijayan, special award people’s choice winner.

Grey langurs play in the evening light of Bandipur national park, Karnataka, India. Vijayan travelled from Canada to India to photograph tigers and leopards. After a day on safari with no sight of the big cats, his attention was caught by a group of grey langurs playing on a nearby tree.
