Primates that live in large, socially complex societies have evolved large brains and sophisticated cognitive abilities. The black Crested Macaque that lives in troops of up to more than 100 members is a good example of this. I spent two weeks photographing it in the monsoon forest of Sulawesi and I was really struck by how smart it seems, with eyes so full of awareness and presence. Like this male in a contemplating pose. Tangkoko.
