What Were The Monkeys Doing?

I saw only silhouettes of monkey when I got closer. Moreover, I barely heard anything at this distance. In fact, I had not found my answer yet.

But out of a sudden,

a couple of them came rushing out. This had caught me off guard. Before I could response, what they did next even put my hands in a great bustle.

"What a racket. I think the male was trying to get at the female and she wanted no part of it."

She really wanted no part of it.

This lasted less than half a minute, and they left the "crime scene" as quickly as possible into the woods by the other side of the walkway.

Why did they run one after another? And why did the one in front keep looking back?

The one in front must be a female. She tried to escape while looking back to confirm the male was not right after her.

I do not know whether my presence had helped to reduce the "crime rate" of the monkey kingdom by one case, or I should not be there at all.

By the way, it was so happen that I had witnessed their story.

Well, like they always say...monkeys will be monkeys.
Wait a minute...I think that was boys will be boys.
But in this case...it's monkeys will be monkeys and a rare catch.

Sometimes in my yard when the big tortoise chases after the little tortoise, I distract him with a long drink of water from the hose, so the little one can get away. I do not know if my interference is right or not.

So much monkey business goes on in animal world that it's hard for us to know if the behavior we observe is "acceptable" for them. The monkeys sure had you busy with your camera!

We have too too little understanding, but I did not intend to interrupt the monkey business. Sorry to them, or will the female thank me?

Filip Demuinck:
This is a temporary change, but hope you like it.

It sounds as if you became a Peeping Tom! But you certainly got wonderful pictures of the monkeys. You are a good nature photographer.

Wildlife can be cruel sometime.

You happened to be at the right place at the right time to capture the moment. A naughty monkey showing his dominance.

Ratty said...

Bad monkey! Bad bad monkey! I guess you had to be the police that day. But maybe they were just embarrassed when they saw you spying on them. You broke up their monkey love. Great nature photos though. This is what nature photography is all about. You caught a very rare photo.

The Paparazzi member's first scoop! lol

I think this female is a mom, a preggy one perhaps, if so that explains her attitude.
