Camera Critters #223 - Quit Monkeying Around - July 14, 2012

A few days ago, I bought a bag of beautiful tomatoes and onions from a 
vendor who passed in front of my Indian home.  I placed them on a bin 
under the desk next to my bed, planning to make a sandwich later in the
day, Then, drowsy from the heat, leaving the front door to my room open,
to catch the breeze from my third floor location, I took a nap.  My back
was to the door.

I woke up to hear a rustling sound next to me on the floor.  When I turned
over, I saw a HUGE monkey busily eating my newly purchased produce -
so close I could touch him.  I let out a blood curdling scream and he grabbed
the bag and raced for the stairs.  I managed to grab my camera and head
after him, with my floormates, running out of their rooms.

The monkey remained on the next landing, allowing my photos as long as
I stepped no further.  Finally, tired of my papparazi intrusion, he grabbed
the bag and leaped on the neighboring roof, out of camera range.

He ate only the inside of the tomatoes
