Howler Monkey

The highlight of our river float trip was a great view of a howler monkey.  Usually trying to photograph howler monkeys presents the problem of shooting up into the treetops with the dark monkeys silhouetted against a light sky.  Nothing could be worse for a photograph.

Fortunately, this howler monkey was part of a group that had come down to some low hanging trees on the side of the river, with only leaves in the background, not the sky.   He was apparently not threatened by our presence in a raft, so he stayed there as we floated past.

We have new photos of the colonial architecture of Grenada, Nicaragua posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.
