Special Yunnan Lifestyle| Langurs, monkeys, gibbons... They have "jumped" into the spring!
Spring is a magical season. This is particularly the case in Yunnan.
With a provincial capital (Kunming) known as the City of Eternal Spring, Yunnan has amazed the world through different means, including its incredible biodiversity.
Run Ning and Shan Lan, two local photographers, recently captured three species of primates by their cameras - namely Indochinese grey langur, black snub nosed-monkey and black crested gibbon - in two national nature reserves in Yunnan.
They jumped, swang and scurried through the canopy. Cherry and azalea flowers became their ultimate delicacies.
What these photographs show is a world you might have never seen before!
1. Indochinese grey langur (Trachypithe cuscrepusculus)
The Indochinese gray langur is a species of Lutung inhabiting in the forests in southwest China, southern Myanmar, northern Thailand, north and central Laos as well as northern Vietnam.
The photographs below were recently taken in western Yunnan's Wuliangshan nature reserve.
2. Black snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus bieti)
Also known as Yunnan snub-nosed monkey, the black snub-nosed monkey is an endangered primate species mainly dwelling in the highland forests of Yunnan province.
These images were captured in the Baima snow mountain nature reserve in northwest Yunnan.
3. Black crested gibbon（Nomascus concolors）
As a critically endangered species of gibbon, the black crested gibbons have only been found in China, Laos and northern Vietnam so far, with four subspecies. They live in evergreen and semi-evergreen forests.
All the pictures were taken in the Wuliangshan nature reserve.
Looking at these small but swift and graceful animals, we genuinely feel how wonderful the nature is, and how strong the power of life could be!
