    Beautiful shot! Not particularly fond of thieving monkeys though, they can get really vicious.

    Nice picture, TBM. The monkeys here are like that – trying to steal food from people.

  8. I don’t know what it is about monkeys, but they scare me a little. I agree about the vivid colors~very nice!

      From my experience in Malaysia and Africa, monkeys are always plotting to steal things, which makes them very intimidating. They don’t like to be denied.

  9. I wonder how I would react if a monkey tries to steal my food?? I’m thinking that I’ll put up a fight, after all, I love my food:)

  10. clever little fellows – cousins i guess they are to us.
