    This monkey sanctuary is close to Ubud on Bali and is a popular stop for the tourists and locals alike. Remember, these animals maybe used to humans and they love you to feed them, but they are wild and they are no fences between you and them. Have to say I continue to be impressed woth the performance of my new Nikon AF-S 80-400 f4.5-5.6G.

    All comments welcome, thanks.

    Is the title supposed to be "Sacred" John or have they renamed it after the monkeys saw you ? :eek: :devil: :rotfl:
