Spider Monkey

Spider Monkeys are one of four species of monkey in Costa Rica.  We saw a few troops during our stay – trying to get a decent photograph of them was an exercise more difficult than I imagined it would be.  Their speed through the canopy, the infuriating habit of my auto-focus to grab anything but focus on the subject and the relatively low light levels didn’t help in this regard.
