Costa Rica! Hat thief
White-faced Capuchin Monkey: Macaw Ranch, Sarapique Valley, Costa Rica, December 2024 — This young Capuchin had already learned the trick of hanging in the low branches of the trees at Macaw Ranch and stealing hats as unwary tourists pasted under. Seemed to think it was great fun to be chased across the lawn and through the trees. OM Systems OM-1 with ED 100-400mm IS zoom at 200mm equivalent. Program mode with my custom birds and wildlife modifications. Processed in Photomator. There is a photo below, which I shared on Facebook a while ago, of the monkey in action, taken my our guide. He did not get my hat but he certainly gave it a try.
