I heard the calls of the monkeys in the forest outside my house so I watched out the window for a minute or two until I saw an adult jump down from the fence and head past my house.
I snuck outside with my camera and caught this guy gleaning my compost pile.
Probably a male.
Sitting on the fence watching was another adult, female I think.
It was not the whole troop, which numbers 20-30, but a family. There were 2 adults, 2 juveniles, and 2 babies.
The mom stood guard while the kids scavenged around.
Ive been fortunate to have lived places where encountering wild animals is the norm.
I spent a good 30 minutes watching the family. One of these days Im going to set up a hide with my camera on a tripod and take some better shots.....
