Perhaps I should seek employment as a surveillance photographer as I found it amusing capturing the mischievous primates on film in Bali, Cambodia, and India.
This cheeky monkey was spotted on Elephanta Island. To get there, we had to take a 50-minute boat ride from India Gate in Mumbai.
First, this little macaque checked the scene to ensure she wasn’t being watched.
Into the blue bucket she dove.
With her prize in sight, she completed one final check…
…and spirited away a bag of savory snacks.
It’d be hard to identify her in a line-up with only the derrière shot!
But I caught her later, enjoying the evidence. :)
Where in the World?
- To reach Elephanta Island, catch a ferry by the Gateway of India. The ferry ride takes about 30 minutes each way.
