Up To Some Monkey Business

An invitation came through to visit and photograph Trentham Monkey Forest, so Sue and I packed some light camera kit and off we went down the M6. Sue was using the Pentax K-3 with 18-270mm lens and I had the Canon R5 with the new 70-200mm f/4. The review of the Canon lens is now live on ePHOTOzine.

It was a great day for the purpose, not too sunny so no horrible shadows to deal with. We were greeted by Matt:

and then let loose into the forest, where the monkeys were critically observing the humans that passed by. Actually, they just might have been more interested in finding scraps of food, tumbling out of trees and picking fleas off each other.

Photographically, it’s good fun and definitely worth a visit, otherwise probably a great place to take the kids. Just at the moment there are nine baby monkeys, so plenty of “aah” factor!

Many thanks to Monkey Forest for the opportunity.
