Monkey Business

 
Are you looking at me?
This cute little fellow was one of a number on the road side as we travelled between Angkor Thom and the Bayon. They looked so adorable, I just had to get out of the tuk tuk for some photos. But don't be fooled by their cuteness - they can become very territorial. Particularly when it comes to food!

They also have excellent eyesight - talk about 20/20 vision!


Today's Quote: Never hold discussions with the monkey when the organ grinder is in the room - Winston Churchill.

Really nice picture. Monkey's are great!

He is a cutie, but you're absolutely right - they can be quite dangerous...a bunch of monkeys got loose in South Florida and now they are hanging out in the mangroves and they can't catch them so people are warned to stay away - don't try to play with them!

hi bfg, thank you for the award, we're like exchanging gifts, lol.
i'm loving your cambodia trips
i hope to see more of angkor wat and the place you've been! ^0^

Lois said...

Thank you so much! I am honored. The monkey looks like he might have been in a little skirmish.

Rob and Mandy said...

Oh wow, another well deserved award!
Watch out for those monkeys, they can be really dangerous. Do not stare!

Are you certain that isn't «Louis'» former father-in-law in that photo?

Very cute but he looks like he needs a bandage. I bet he'd rather have a piece of fruit though. :)

I'm glad you survived your close encounters with this guy. He looks like he's a bit of a scrapper to me.

Thank you so much for this lovely award! I feel very honored and I will post it tomorrow. However, there are so many blogs I really like that I just can not name a few, and will pass the award to everyone. I hope you understand. Thanks once again! :-)

Hope you had a great holiday - thanks for the award - I appreciate you thinking of me - as a general rule though I don't pass these things on.

Leif Hagen said...

Monkeys are cheeky and greedy, they remind me of some children I know. Thank you for the award, I'm flattered.

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Blossom Flower Girl, I'm so glad you are back from your exciting travels. Thank you very much for thinking about me and giving me the award. I love it very much. I've been pretty busy lately and can't visit blogs as often as I want to. This post on 'monkey business' is cute and fun :)
