Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Lunchtime


I’m not one to photograph food so I think I’ll go a little different way again.  To follow-up on my last post, here’s another view of a different kind of monkey, a Rhesus monkey or macaque – at Lunchtime….needless to say, they will scavenge anything that people leave around or give them.

    • Hi Jackie,
      There were several instances where we saw the monkey’s abilities to manipulate packaging made for man – they are closer to us than we think…
