It’s early in the morning, we pulled into the thick canopy of the Amazonia. Spotting wildlife is never an easy task here in the Amazons.
It must be our lucky day. The big eyes catching the light filtering through the tree branches were giving it away.
As we held our breath and tried to adjust our vision to limited light, we met the curious eyes and the smiley faces (I think) of a family high up in the tree trunk.
Oh, hello! So nice of you to come say hi after a whole night of fruit-picking and leaf-eating. We are content from meeting the only nocturnal monkeys in the world, owl monkeys. You’ve made our day and you can go back to sleep now.
Recent news about the Amazon rainforest fires makes me think of you.
Como has estado?
I hope you are doing well, big-eyes!
