Monkey portraiture

I wanted to take him home!!

I wanted to take him home!!

There is nothing like a cute portrait photo & I think this fits the bill. Travelling to Gibraltar is not the same unless you get to the top of the Rock to see the Barbary Macaque’s. The Gibraltar Barbary macaques are considered by many to be the top tourist attraction in Gibraltar. The most popular troop is that of Queen’s Gate at the Apes’ Den, where people can get especially close to the monkeys. They will often approach and sometimes climb onto people, as they are used to human interaction. Nevertheless, they are still wild animals and will bite if frightened or annoyed. As you can see from yesterday’s photos the troop we saw were especially friendly. I’ll post a few more pictures over the coming days…
