Delightful little fellow!
These creatures live in the wild, but they have been tamed for tourism, a little, by the use of a buffalo horn. When it is blown, the monkeys arrive in anticipation of another group of tourists who will want to toss bananas or peanuts. They don't stay long though for as soon as the food has been tossed they scamper up into the forest canopy or deeper into the forest.
And if you don't have your camera securely held, with strap around your neck, it might be adeptly whipped out of your hands and taken away.
Glad you like this.
Excellent close-up Ian. LIKE! Greetings Berend
I was alert to make sure the mother didn't make a grab for the camera, Berend. They both cooperated long enough, but it wasn't long before she was 15M up one of the trees and heading away into the forest canopy.
Thanks for the compliment.
So cute. LIE
Thanks Jeff. Big ears, big eyes, and pure inocence!
Thank you, Annie. And I send you my warmest regards from Brisbane.
You probably took this photo in low light?
Dear Ah-Pong. It was filtered light for the canopy was quite high here, with some clearing, but yes it was quite shaded. I wasn't prepared to use a flash for the sake of the monkeys.
que coisinha linda!
He looks like a little old man... but cute, I agree.
é muito fofinho!
cute indeed, but his mother was very aggressive - this portrait was taken with a 300mm lens and a few metres!
legal! FOI DIFÍCIL TIRAR, ENTÃO!
Yes, Lianne, hard enough that I could legitimately submit it to the difficult or dangerous group photos!
