[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Goeldi's monkey.
The Goeldi's monkey look like ordinary black tamarinds, but in reality they form a group apart. One difference is that a female gives only birth to one baby at the time, while the other tamarins from South America usually have twins.
It is such a small, quick monkey I had some difficulties to catch him. It was also getting late and under the trees it was getting too dark. So I've tried it with the flash. In fact it worked out nicely. I was almost lying down on the bridge where it was walking around and jumping in and from trees. Probably he found it strange to see a human lying there and stopped for just a moment. At the same time I made the photo. It's just the original.
