Just one upload more before we go on holiday!
Taken on Saturday - not sure what type of monkey - can any one help, please?
Tightly cropped as it was taken through wire netting - bit of a nuisance but necessary from the health and safety point of view!
Many sincere thanks for all views, clicks and comments on my 'Happiness is Finding the Right Balance!' upload.Smile
Have a good week.
Richard

Excellent shot given the difficulties in capture but the tight crop works so well anyway, Richard: fine detail, and doesn't it have a rather sad resigned countenance?

PS When you asked what kind of "monkey" it was, I thought you were joking as I had seen it as a cleverly disguised self portrait but now I look more closely I can see you why you were asking! A "Lar Gibbon" eh? Not a "Funky" one then!
