Monkey self-portrait
(Indonesia: Bali)

August 2004
Indonesia: Bali: Monkey self-portrait

I was working on the previous photo (of the mother monkey with her baby) when this guy hopped on my shoulders and started searching my hair for bugs. I guess it was fertile hunting ground, because he was so intent that he didn't even flinch as I reached out to take this photo of the two of us.

And I have to confess it took me about 8 tries to get one where the camera was aimed properly.
