When I was going to Uganda, I did not know that one of the best experiences in my life will be encounter with these incredible monkeys. But taking pictures was the most difficult. Bamboos were all around, it was almost impossible to find a loophole to see monkeys... They were jumping between bamboos, tearing from the ground their sprouts and eating them. Only very little light was penetrating through the vegetation and I could not use the flash. Surprisingly, the interplay of light colors between bamboos created unique atmosphere.
Location: National Park Mgahinga, Virunga volcanoes - Uganda
