I won with my monkeys again, 2nd Prize in Nature Category! :)
Sweet Mother's MilkOn the island of Bali, the long-tailed macaques like to hang around near humans as they often are given a bite to eat. You often see them around temples, I came across them at Ulluwatu temple. They spend their time rummaging on the temple walls and watch to see if they can pinch some delicacy from the tourists. One of the young macaques filched the hair elastic from a girl walking in front of me in split of a second and tore it to pieces in a spectacular performance.
In a testament to its increasing popularity, more photos were submitted to the Hungarian Press Photo Competition in 2008 than in any other year. The awards ceremony will be held at the Hungarian National Museum, where an exhibition of Hungarian Press Photos from 2008 will also be opening.
