White-faced Capuchin monkey profile

This is a photo of the profile of a white faced capuchin monkey who jumped on our boat the take a piece of banana from us. I took this photo during a wildlife boat cruise on the Tempisque River in Palo Verde National Park.

The monkeys know to expect tour boats to stop at a particular spot along the river bank, and they will emerge from the forest to hop on the boats, and take banana pieces from tourists.

This week we have photos of Tanazania's Ngorongoro Crater and Maasi people on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

The way they use their tail is fantastic! Great capture!

This is a great photo of this little rascal. I was thinking along the same lines as JM this morning. I have admiration for the way they use those powerful tails.

I think monkeys are really cute but wonder if it's scary when they start coming towards you? Thanks for dropping by yesterday. We're looking forward to more visits. It's a small world, no?

A cutie for sure with those hairy ears and the tip of the tongue sticking out.

Well isn't he cute and so tame.

A cute little fellow! Those monkeys sound like they have the tourists trained pretty well.

Very smart! ;)

Monkeys learn quickly from humans. Anywhere.

Oh I like this little monkey - he looks like he's standing on his tail. Great shot.
