18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Swaying Green Vervet Monkey

This monkey was small and apart of a big family. I think it was the youngest of the bunch which was surprising because they ran up behind me and was more brave than all of the bigger monkeys. He had such a curiosity of me and my family. He mimicked my movement and I got this photo of him swaying. Don't worry his family was watching and once they started moving their way towards us, we fled.
