A close encounter
It felt like big brother was watching me.
Always expect the unexpected. Sometimes you won't see anything worthy to shoot and sometimes you have no idea where to start. On this day I was trying to shoot some woodpeckers and toucans from a not so close range, but instead I got more than I wished for.
This is the period when all the Mope trees in the jungle are starting to bare fruits. Some taste sour and others are a combination of sour/sweet. This also means that the ground is also covered with this yellow/orange plum. Tortoises are easily attracted to this extra treat and thereby forget that we might meet each other in the open.
Most of the time are monkeys constantly on the move. Giving you barely enough time to shoot them. Only when there is enough food for each and everyone of their clan, they will sit still for a moment. Just like this Brown Capuchin Monkey having a mouth full.
I got quite a scare when I looked up. This Red Howler Monkey wasn't making much noise and neither did he howler. This one was looking straight at me with such a dull face. I didn't know what went through his mind. I did felt 'watched'.
