14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Monkey See

This is taken from a outdoor restaurant. This monkey is commonly seen in the surrounding area because the restaurant staff would feed him to attract him for tourists. It still hadn't completely lost its wariness of humans, and here it was slowly approaching a banana out of picture. Feeding wildlife encourages extremely destructive behaviors in the organisms.
