Monkey See

“The surest way to make a monkey of a man is to quote him.”
Robert Benchley 1889-1945

And this is the reincarnated Robert Benchley who now roams freely on an island in Thailand. I admire Mr. Benchley's beautiful eyes.

  12. Ha,ha,ha...very clever Don! This is an absolutely beautiful photograph. I just watched a documentary about monkeys yesterday. Imagine living in a place where monkeys are native! I know they can be mischievous, but they are quite charming.

  13. Love everything about this photo, Don. The colors are beautiful, the DOF and exposure are perfect. The composition is priceless. I especially like the diagonal log and the focus on his eyes.
