Oh look! Bananas! Oh no! A pesky human! Oh how annoying! That darned human's gone and closed the balcony door :( Oh nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!! A camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To leap or not to leap... that is the question.
Hmmm... there might be a teeny little goof up in the parts assembly ...
...good, I've got it on its side; now give it a turn, and - Eureka!! I've invented the wheel!!!!
All this monkeying around is giving me a headache - time to go home now, I guess.
Yep! I've looked everywhere. No more peanuts. Definitely time to go home.
We buy a lot of peanuts, they're very healthy for snacks. But sometimes we'll get a bad batch. Infested with aspergillus. Those ones we don't just dump in the rubbish, we use them to fertilise our little effort at fighting climate change in the balcony. Obviously, we never budgeted for this gang of freeloaders looking for an easy lunch. We live in a city - in Bombay, for goodness sake. Anyway, these critters may look cute and all, but they're wild animals and very dangerous. I was alone at home at the time, the balcony doors were wide open and if I hadn't been alerted beforehand by their screeching, they could have ruined and rampaged all over the house. A gang of angry monkeys confronting a defenseless human can maul him beyond recognition, leave alone the aftermath of unknown infections and rabies. So all in all, I had a very lucky escape. We now leave all the doors and windows securely shut even when we're at home, unless someone is actually in a particular room. We also got firm wire mesh installed on the windows that we can't close.
Moral of the story? Wildlife close-up photography is best left to Discovery Channel. :)
Bye, and hope u all enjoyed the pics :)
