Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

Day 212 – February 19, 2012

Together is the theme of this week’s photo challenge from WordPress.

My photographic offering for the theme once again takes me to our February outing to the Peruvian portion of the Amazon jungle (previous posts include here and here).

On this Sunday in particular, the family and I went to an animal rescue center. In addition to an ark’s worth of animals that we saw (and honestly, one day, I will post a plethora of pictures from that visit), there was one particular monkey that stole the show for us.

The monkeys at this rescue center are accustomed to having people around. They have no fear around humans and are quite happy to approach people and even jump on them as if they were trees. One monkey took a shine to my lovely wife and would not let go.

Ah...togetherness

Every time one of the center’s staff would extricate the monkey, it would jump right back on her.

This off-again-on-again routine took place for about ten minutes and was only stopped when we boarded our flat-bottom boat to leave. Not that our departure deterred the monkey…but that’s a story for another day.

    Ahahaha. How cute!! My “together” post was also about a monkey (and her baby!).

    • Good choice. You can’t go wrong with a picture of a monkey for that “awww” factor.

        It’s true. Actually, one of these little guys vied to be adopted by my husband and followed him around for the afternoon. The cuteness factor was through the roof. Can’t wait to see what you post for the next photo challenge :)
