19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Monkey in Lopburi

This picture was taken in Lopburi, Thailand. In the city, a lot of monkeys are seen in the street and on the buildings. While we were passing by car, I noticed this monkey on a bin, eating some dry leaf. We stopped and I went down to take the shot. Behind, there is a house and the statue of a Buddha or of Hanuman (the monkey deity).
