The theme of this week's Corner View is animals. I thought about elephants, I thought about lions, I even thought about my cat, Sid, but in the end I went with monkeys. The top photo is of a little marmoset I saw when I was walking through the forest on Ilha Grande, in Brazil, which is, incidentally, a place that would figure in my Top 10 Paradises on Earth. The second photo is of a family of macaques I saw by the roadside on a recent trip to Sri Lanka. What got me in both cases were their facial expressions (and their fashionable hairstyles).
