XXII Monkey Business

XXII - Monkeys

While we were walking on the paths to the falls, we sighted many Capuchin monkeys. There would be 3 or 4 of them at any given time running through the trees above us making 'Monkey sounds.' Often they would sit in a tree very close to the path.  If I didn't know better, I would say their attitude was - 'Here I am. I'll sit here until you just about get your camera focused. Then - Oops, I'm gone.' Luckily, all of them did not have that attitude.

We found several that would sit just out of arm's reach. Those granted us the opportunity to get photographic proof that we had seen them.

Sometimes they would be eating a piece of fruit, but often they would just sit there looking at us.

Just humor me here, it took a lot of time to get a few decent photos and even these are not as clear as they should be.

We continued on the path.

Almost around every turn there was a view of yet another water fall. In photo below, note the elevated walkway above the falls. (Yes, I walked across that walkway. Personally, I was terrifying.)
