Sunday morning visitors

While I was eating my breakfast this morning (muesli with yogurt), there was a commotion on the balcony just outside our apartment. Dan opened the door to see a troop of langurs in the trees and on our balcony. A few scattered, but others just looked. Fortunately, our screen door has a latch. These bold creatures would gladly pull open the door and come in looking for food. I jumped up to grab my camera and take a few shots -- I never tire of seeing these beautiful animals.

I can't imagine what he found there to eat

The largest mother I've ever seen

Watching each other

While I was posting these pictures, there was a sudden loud squealing and banging of roofs. This time it is the rhesus monkeys having a fight.


  1. I have watched--in wonder--documentaries on monkey theives in India. They form families, pecking orders, routes, use tools, and are absolutely amazing. Enjoy observing them. Do they like museli?

  2. Believe me, I don't let our food get anywhere near them. The balcony door stays latched when they are around! I do believe they will eat almost anything.


Please send me your thoughts about my posts.
