A male Sulawesi crested black macaque (Macaca nigra) tries to watch his own reflection in the mirror of a motorbike parked along a forest road, in the Tangkoko Nature Reserve. Crested black macaques are critically endangered: they are hunted for meat, kept as pets and threatened by a shrinking habitat. Unpublished photograph from my @natgeo magazine story ‘A Fight to Survive’ (March issue)
