Weekly Photo Challenge: Together
Day 212 – February 19, 2012
Together is the theme of this week’s photo challenge from WordPress.
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.
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.
