Howler monkeys are content to sit or hang in the trees and stare at humans who stare and take photos of them.
This photo illustrates the challenge of trying to get a good photo of howler monkeys. Usually you are pointing the camera up at bright sky and the howler monkeys are very dark. The back lighting causes the monkeys to appear even darker. The trick to being able to photograph their features is to move to an angle where the background behind the monkey is mostly leaves and there is not as much sky in the frame.
Today is Sunday, so that means that we have posted new photos on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing some photos of Budapest, Hungary.
