Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Fort Wayne's Children's Zoo, Capuchin Monkey Shenanigans

Who is looking at whom?? 
Me at the monkey or the monkey at me??

Is that an overbite or a snarl??

No, he/she is not playing tennis,

he/she would dump that ball in the water, I think he/she was filling it:

Twas a hot day and this guy/gal knew just what to do:

It is a bit hard to envision with just a photo, but, after watching this action for a few moments, I would have sworn he/she was washing his/her hands, moving the water from the left to the right, time and time again.

Finally tired out from all the shenanigans, decided to just flop on a rock and have a rest.  But, not for long, seems they cannot sit still for long, moments later, he/she was up and moving again.

*An interesting thing happened while I was working on this post.  I upload my photos to the Picasa storage area manually, as I want to control the place photos are stored and the size of the albums.  As I was obtaining the URL for each photo I noted that Picasa wanted to know if I wanted to name this monkey (you know, the face recogition stuff ).  My guess is that the face is close enough to a human face that Picasa thinks the monkey should have a name.  I cannot remember Picasa doing this before on any of the other animal photos I have uploaded.  Hmmmmmm!!??

First, I think it was angry, then got over it and decided to entertain you. Gosh, I hope through face recognition, she/he doesn't look like me. But, no, I look like a flower now! I really enjoyed your series. Great zoo for children of all ages.
