      Thank you for putting this beautiful photo up under a Creative Commons license. I have used it in a news article I wrote for kids about the lesula as a new species of monkey. Exciting news! This is the link to it if you would like to see. I credited the photo as well. htekidsnews.com/new-monkey-discovered/ Thank you again.

      Google "lesula" and this is what you see. I think a lot of people are using it uncredited. It is an amazing picture. Thanks for sharing it with the world.

      Incredible photo. Such a beautiful and peaceful expression. I hope these creatures can survive the humans that encroach upon their habitat.

      Congratulations on your PLoS One paper. I was particularly impressed by your attention to ethics--obtaining approval from lthe hunters, not hunting animals for research purposes, photographing only with approval of the owners, and discouraging people from acquiring animals as captives. You are setting a fine standard for others!

      It's also impressive how comprehensive your paper is--not only the initial discovery, but genetics, extensive field observations, behavior and vocalizations, detailed morphology, discussion of conservation. This is certainly above and beyond the typical taxonomy paper. Well done, John and Terry!
