Mother & baby monkey walking on roof

The howler monkey mother and baby in the photo that I posted yesterday got up after sitting on the roof for a few moments.  They walked towards one of the trees in which other of their group were sitting on branches and eating.

Julie and I were concentrating on the monkeys on the roof rather than the monkeys in the tree branches above us because it is difficult to photograph dark howler monkeys pointing the cameral up towards a bright sky.

You may be able to guess what happened while I was taking photos of the monkeys on the roof while standing under a tree with several other monkeys in the branches above.  Yes, I felt a warm liquid on my arm.

We are showing photos of Egypt this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

An umbrella might be a good idea when visiting a group of these critters!

Ugh! That is unfortunate but we photographers take such a thing in stride for the photograph must be taken! :-)
