It’s true, monkeys amuse me. As long as they don’t fling poo at or near me, that is. 😉 But happily, these haven’t. Yet. The worst they’ve done, so far, is to eat my lemongrass or leave mango pits on our balcony. Maybe. Except that we don’t know for a fact that it was the monkeys, the neighborhood purple-faced leaf monkeys, aka purple-faced langurs – could have been squirrels, rats, cats, or palm civets. Or something else altogether different.
The monkeys came back today – I don’t see them every day, nor even every week or month. They come and go as they please on their own schedule. After all, that’s what neighborhood animals do. 🙂
My first clue they were in the neighborhood? A very loud howl. You know, the usual. 🙂 So I grabbed my trusty camera and went outside and what did I see, but this…
Monkeys, jumping around from tree to tree. At one point, a little monkey jumped into the tree right in front of our house. That monkey was a mere ten feet away from me! He must have been shy, though, because as soon as he noticed me watching him, he hid behind as much foliage as he could find.
And then there was also the cow, lying down in the empty lot next door. So of course I had to photograph her as well. 🙂

Take a look at the cows in my banner. Some of those are pretty skinny, too.
You know, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed tags. 😛
Most of the cows here tend to have a collar of some form or another (I think – I honestly haven’t looked!) so they can be tied to a tree or palm and graze on vegetation in an empty lot. But then, some just wander freely, so who knows.
That is the skinniest cow I’ve ever had the pleasure of laying my eyes on. Must be loved, though, wearing a collar and all. Did it have tags? ;o)
