A Barbary Macaque, or "Gibraltar Monkey" looks to the sky as tourists crowd his habitat. No one is sure how this population of primates got to the area, but they are now the top attraction of Gibraltar. I was lucky to catch this beautiful animal up close, so I had to capture the moment!

Location: Gibraltar, Spain
