Monkey business

Monkey BusinessI took this picture of a monkey in Shimla, India, minutes after it had made off with a visitor’s packet of sweets that he was to offer at a temple. The ‘thief’ ensured he was at a safe distance but still visible and appeared to cock a snook at the worshipers with a ‘catch me if you can’ look. The ‘spoils’ of the loot are still visible on his face!

    Great! I try to click monkeys too but I think I am just too scared of them to even hold the camera straight! Which temple was this? Jakhoo?

      Strangely, we have visited Shimla dozens of times but have never been to Jakhoo. This was taken at a small temple on the approach to Shimla by train – just before Summer Hill. Forget the name but it had quite a festival going when we were there for a couple of hours!

    My goodness, I almost couldn’t open this post because I dislike monkeys with a passion!! I do not know why – something may have happened to me at a zoo as a child, but I bypass seeing monkeys for the most part. While on vacation in the Mexican jungles one time, I was horrified to find them above us in the trees while on a hike to some Mayan ruins! But since this was simply a photograph with a little story, I felt I could manage the post!! Ha ha! See, I was correct… monkeys are certainly not to be trusted!! 🙂

  3. We saw a man walking a monkey on a leash while driving around Amwaj today. It was a first for us, to say the least!
