  1. Interesting monkeys! We are fortunate to have such s nice zoo.

  2. Great shots, Francine. What an interesting turn their ancestors took, never having or losing their thumbs. They must be the only primate like that.

  3. great picture and looks cool with that white hair 🙂

  4. I’ve always admired their style!

  5. Beautiful pictures Francine.

  6. I didn’t know that about their thumbs. Cute little buggers 🙂

  7. “B&W” and living in the jungle!!! Great shots of these “bold yet shy” creatures, Francine!
    🙂

  8. Love them! There’s a hairstyle to copy when I decide to let my hair turn fully grey 😀
