15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Hopeful Onlooker

We were Hiking in Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica among some of the most exotic species in the area. I came across this wonderful group of Capuchin Monkeys. Devilishly clever, they pose for the camera while their buddies snag your lunch from behind you. I refer to him as the 'Hopeful Onlooker' because he seemed to know that while he had my full attention, he was watching his friends make a run for my food behind me.
