Corner View - Animals



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).

  1. It's as if the marmoset is waving from behind the tree. Fun that you were able to see in nature during your travels. Cheers ~

  3. The first picture makes me think of lemurs of Madagascar. They are so cool. I've never been to Madagascar, but would love to go one day - to see the lemurs, of course. I have seen them at the Duke Lemur Center on two different visits, and was so fascinated! Thanks, Ian!
