Monkey Business

While in The City, we went to the Central Park Zoo. I thought it was really well done for a small zoo. As we walked around we happened to catch this great interaction between some snow monkeys (whose habitat is on a rocky island) and this goose/swan (?).

There was just one monkey near the water and the bird clearly thought he could take him!
Monkey was a bit nervous...approaching and then backing off.
But wait! Here come the reinforcements! The *big* daddy monkey came strutting around (as did numerous other monkeys...from every direction!)
With the entire battalion forming up, the bird thought better of his original plan and took off. His antics did, however, send the littlest monkey baby into Mama's comforting arms.
