This pregnant spider monkey eats leaves upside down in primary rainforest. Very hard to spot and photograph because the spider monkeys tend to hide way up in the canopy when the occasional bushwalker strolls around.

This spectacled owl woke me up at 5 o'clock in the morning - well worth it! It was perched in a cecropia tree and definitively was after some late night nibbles as it totally ignored me. I had to correct the red "satanic" eyes in LR, because there was no time to get the flash out of the camera axis.
