Monkey do

By ColleenA
This ones for Walt after his comment yesterday 😀..... At the Uluwatu temple big sign boards read...take off you sunglasses and watch your hats ....a Chinese lady did not read it or take it seriously and lost her shiny blue sunglasses to this monkey who went about systematically destroying them....caught me unawares with camera at wrong settings the way he held the arm of the sunglasses with his foot...he was attracted to the reflection of himself...see versions but not sharp images
The monkeys at the temple even have their own walled swimming pool. It was over 30 degC and very humid so many of them were taking a dip...tomorrows images...a wet monkey is not attractive
Many thanks for your votes and comments and to all who gave me user awards.

Parece el mismo diablo, perpetrando alguno de sus desarreglos, en este caso los lentes de la desobediente china, y ahí tuvo la penitencia.
Buena toma, divertida y con moraleja, si no eres bueno, recibirás tu merecido castigo.

Wouldn't it have been hilarious if he had put them on. A great set Colleen.

A great spectacle captured here Colleen, well done for just clicking away instead of trying to change your settings and miss the shots.

Yip, anything pinched will get dismantled: there is an animal park here where cars can have their hubcaps, wipers, etc. all pulled off.
Nice shots of this example.

Funny photographs but not so funny for the one who didn't read the notice.

Not a huge monkey fan, I find them a bit scary...... Look forward to the wet ones though.

You caught him in the act, his curiosity will destroy the glasses. I also like the way he held the arm of the sunglasses with his foot, Colleen.
