Geoffroy’s Tamarins pay me a visit, Nov 14th

15 11 2010

Took a lazy day today. Started with coffee on the veranda at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort and a little catching up on the internet there.

The reason for the laziness? I’ve got a blister on my lil’ toe that makes my lil’ toe easy to confuse with my big toe.  It’s so big that I figure that if I get into a survival situation some day…out of water on a hot day with a looong way back, The Blister will be my Plan B.  Sure, drinkin blister water is kinda gross, but we’re talking survival here. I thought of it myself, but I bet it’s in a Navy SEAL manual someplace. Probably for ‘eyes only’ since it’s so extreme.

So I get back to the crib and I’m reading my book and occasionally getting up and limping around and taking shots of my great yard birds. Then, about mid-afternoon, I hear a lot of high pitched chirping and look up. Well, what have we here??? Geoffroy’s Tamarins, a whole troop, in my yard! Sweeeeet!!!

Now, when you see these Tamarin, you’re probably saying to yourself, like I did, ‘Wow, bet ol’ Dan’l Boone would have made one hell of a cap out of one of those! Just picture ol’ Dan’l Boone showing up at the saloon with his new Tamarin Sombrero, making one hell of a fashion statement.  (He could do it, because Dan’l was tough, and to make a fashion statement like that in the 1800’s and survive, you gotta be tough)

Anyway, here are a couple of the shots I liked. Handsome little devils, aren’t they?

Dude, I’ll bring an umbrella. Geoffrey, whoever he is, sure owns some cool looking monkeys.
