10 Minutes from Where You Are.....

All around us we have these lovely Colobus Monkeys but they are usually so far up the trees and behind foliage we can't take good photos. I was getting desperate yesterday evening when we went for a drive and found this group just down the road. They were about 100 feet high in the tree and very shy. Colobus are vegetarian, their young are born totally white and get darker after about 3 months. These monkeys only have four thumb.  I would love to have been able to send you a picture of them flying from one tree to is truly spectacular.
