Monkey Visit

Today at about three there was a commotion outside as all our neighbours went running over with binoculars and cameras. The Howling Monkeys were putting on a show at the top of the tree at the end of the swimming pool. It is not a common sight to have them this close! They are larger than I imagined, maybe four or five feet tall and have a very deep sound,  almost like a dog growling, coughing and grunting. They are very loud and were communicating with another group off in the distance. I took many photos but the monkeys blended in with the tree in most cases. This will give you an idea. I used my 300mm lens at full extension and cropped the final results about 100%.
