Hey Hey! We’re the Monkeys

 

Earlier this year we went to Africa, and I’m finally getting round to sorting through the thousands of photos I took. Like these ones. We’d stopped in the picnic area of Tangerie National Park in Tanzania.  It was on top of a hill and looking out over the plane there were hundreds of elephants. As we were eating a little squirrel darted around our feet looking for crumbs, and we could hear squawks  and rustling in the nearby bushes. After lunch I wandered over to the source  of the commotion. Monkeys! I ducked under the branches and while they watched me warily at first, they kept on with what they were doing, and they didn’t seem to mind the shutter sound on the camera either. I felt all David Attenborough-y.
