Photo of the Week--6/7/10

Not many pigeons in Gibraltar in January, but there were plenty of the famous and misnamed Barbary Apes, which are actually monkeys, specifically macaques. As you can see, they are not afraid of humans at all, so we got quite a few shots up close—but not too close, for safety's sake. We didn't try chasing them, since that's not the safest thing to do and besides, they were more liable to chase you. I wish I could have gotten a shot as we were walking from the top of the rock, where several of the monkeys were riding atop a van ... maybe they thought we were the vermin who needed to be chased out of the picture!
