One thought on “The Coast is Clear – Photograph by Laura Lecce

  1. Capuchins often move together as large family groups, and when they do it is like a tornado moving through the trees. While watching this family of monkeys on a trip to Costa Rica, I saw that at one point they needed to cross a road. Before letting the mums and bubs exit the safety of the trees, they sent out scouts (pictured in this image) to make sure the coast was clear. Once the scouts gave the all clear, monkey after monkey came flying out of the trees to scurry across the road and back into the jungle. Some of their leaps from tree to tree were incredibly far and seemed very dangerous, but they were completely confident and surefooted.
