Please check out the blog preceding this on the Flehman response.You will realize I was getting late and was in a hurry.
I was rushing for lunch to my ” Wildlife Comrade” and buddy Hema’s house. Had just stepped out when I saw a brief command on my mobile, : “Bring your Camera”.
I ran back , grabbed the camera and literally threw it inside the car.
The pictures that follow are entirely due to this “last minute” command. Was it a mere coincidence?
Picture that follows is straight off the camera and was taken near the flyover at the Hauz Khas Metro, New Delhi
As I was driving, the pictures were taken by dear friend Dr Richard Frazier . Was it a mere coincidence, that my dear friends Richard and Catherine were travelling with me and that I had my camera.
This is an extremely unusual sight even in Incredible India. A coincidence?
Do observe the monkey is holding onto the driver of the motorcycle.
WE were really fortunate that New Delhi is unusually warm at 39 C. The hot weather compelled the monkeys to stop for a glass of water. Another element in the sequence of coincidences?
The script in blue in the background of the featured image reads“Cold Water”, Rupees 2 per Glass.
These Rhesus Macaques (Macaca mulatta),or in common parlance monkeys were “coincidentally” the pillion riders on this motorcycle spotted on the busy RING ROAD in the metropolis of New Delhi.
