14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Golden Monkey in Awe

I highly recommend the Golden monkey trek if visiting Volcanoes National Park. Most go to see the mountain gorillas, rightfully so, but taking time to see these guys was so entertaining and special. The expressions on their little faces are very comical, you can see them thinking. Here the monkey looks in awe before reaching up to grab the leaf to eat.
