Cool shot too Ian, very nice. Greetings Berend

Glad you appreciate it Berend. I wasn't very confident, for these were wild monkeys and the males were quite aggressive. But the females with infants were a little more placid, probably because they were not being chased by rutting males.

Greetings, Ian.

Now this is just too cute! And frightening at the same time - thy look really human! Are you back in Indonesia???

Take care ~ Maja ~~~~~

Someone's mother is always special to someone!

And as for frightening, 'tis true that people need to be very wary, not only of the one in front of you, but those that come from behind to whip away your bag or snatch the whole bag of food that you had intended to toss out a little at a time.

No I am home, but being back in Indonesia seems like a good idea to me!

Love and blessings, Maja.

Warmest regards,

It looks a bit different from the macaques of Thailand.

Can you describe any of the differences, Ah-Pong for us? That is interesting.
