Capuchin with fruit.jpg

Barbara says: This is not the best photo, but I like the story. The photo is a Capuchin Monkey in Costa Rica with some fruit in its hands. This was a young male in a troop of monkeys. We spotted them and started following them. When they got to this tree with the large pieces of fruit, the young male started to go for a piece. The other males were furious and started screaming, as he was not of high enough rank to get the fruit first. He rebelled and grabbed a piece which set everyone off. They all started screaming and chasing him, but he got away with the fruit in his mouth. The photo is right after he grabbed the fruit, and was screaming back at the other monkeys.
