Spectacled leaf monkeys

Just as I am about to leave Malaysia for a while (and feeling very happy about it!) I get reminded about its attractions. A troop of these guys is cavorting in the tree directly across the river from my writing room. I’ve got the binoculars out and can see their cute faces clearly. They always look as if they’ve just been surprised by something. They are also the most athletic of the three species of monkey we get here. The branches bounce and sway as they feed from the bright orange flowers of the tulip trees. While I’ve been writing this, they’ve moved away. That’ll be us in a few days!
