Short-tailed Macaque Monkey


I am kind of very cautious, making each step forward with so much calculation and observation.

I had been chased by a short-tailed macaque before, so fiercely, just to confirm my short but powerful legs.

We both stared at each other. Its easiness was unconvincing, and my anxiety seemed unnecessary, but I rather to be fooled now than to be fooled later.

"Is it that great to photograph a monkey?"

The mushrooms followed this silent comedy.

"They only know monkeying around, but you are now Charlie Chaplin."

I swear, the lighting in your mushroom photos is just absolutely astounding!! I so enjoy your artful expertise on photography. And the monkey? Ewwww, if it's a vicious one, I am now thinking you're a brave soul to stick around and try for a photo!!

The monkey seems to be calculating how fast you can run and how much energy he has to pursue. He does not know you run marathons, so would win in the long run. The mushrooms don't want to chance harm to their biggest fan....

We have so much rain this year so my yard is full of mushroom. The problem with these mushroom is that the dog ate some and had a tummy ache! Not a fun thing to deal with :)

Thank you for remembering me! It makes my heart happy to see your name!

Here the 'monkeys' are baboons and we stay at a respectful distance, both wary.

Before lovely mushrooms do not need to run, but before the monkey can anyway. Greetings.

Angie said...

it is better to be safe, hence keep a distance and never show them you have food. I once witnessed a lady being bitten by monkeys just because she was carrying some food and this was at a resort. Thats a beautiful shot of the monkey though. Guess you were at a safe distance.

When you are a mushroom it is not often that you have outside entertainment -- and you can't just run off to the movies or go out to eat. So you are glad when the entertainment comes to you. I am busy right now getting my house organized and have not had much time to go outside to play. So, just like the mushrooms, I too am happy to be amused by you and the short-tailed macque. Thank you!
