18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sitting Monkey

I was standing taking photographs of the far away monkeys and one came up behind me. They were so quiet and peaceful I wouldn't have even known if my family hadn't pointed in their direction. They were too scared to go near this little monkey but I could tell that they didn't want to hurt and I didnt want to hurt them. We were both curious about the other one, in fact the monkey started to mimic my movements, they were very smart. I took lots of photos until the rest of the family started to inch forward and it was time to leave,
