I'm entering the contest early as business travels keeps me mostly away from the site this month. I think this moustached monkey makes an interesting attempt at camouflaging to his environment. As always, thank you for looking and leaving a comment.

You have set the bar high Gibbs.
Part monkey, part raccoon. I bet the fur flew during that transaction.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Magnificent shot of this fellow, love that mustache you might say it's a handlebar one without the waxed ends and turned up. What a great expression on his sweet face. They seem to blend in to their surroundings
