My World - An encounter with monkeys
When I was over at Penang Botanic Garden recently, these little fellas were roaming freely around the park as I stood quietly from a distance. They didn't seem bothered by my presence there.
This one stops for a brief rest on the fence and I think it's enjoying all that morning sunshine.
It was keeping a watchful eye on me. It spotted me taking its picture and it looked quite grumpy but glad it didn't behave aggressively.
It sat there for a few minutes and I wonder what it was thinking
Then it went down the fence and it gave me an intense look. The eye contact can be scary but I wasn't that close as I'd like to be. The photos have been cropped for a closer look.
I captured another shot of him sitting on the ground, looking curious and unafraid. And he too, sat just long enough for me to take a few quick shots. He seemed to be harmless and I think he enjoyed posing for a photo shoot but these primates can be quick to move. It's difficult sometimes to catch just the precise moment and opportunity. Sometimes I get lucky.
That's My World
