Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra

Monkey

This monkey looks like it is imploring the heavens for extras. Food, that is. The little rotters are bold and will take any edibles off you.

The photo was taken at the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali. It’s my contribution to this week’s Extra, Extra theme in the Weekly Photo Challenge.

Monkeying around in Bali

The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary is a must-do in Ubud. It’s a lovely green forest with pathways, strewn with Balinese sculptures and lots of monkeys scurrying around. The monkeys are long-tailed macaques, for those in the know. They are everywhere and they are not shy about coming forward, especially if there’s fruit on offer.

Beware if you are carrying plastic bags. The little – and big (!) – mischief makers aren’t embarrassed about tearing apart your shopping bag to get at what they think are food parcels.

There is a small temple in the forest.  Ladies, if you’re not appropriately dressed, they’ll rent you a sarong to tie around your waist.
