[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most of its upper area is covered by a nature reserve, which is home to around 250 Barbary Macaques,
the only wild monkeys found in Europe.
Recent genetic studies and historical documents point to their presence on the Rock before its capture by the British.
A superstition analogous to that of the ravens at the Tower of London states that if the monkeys ever leave, so will the British.

Not afraid at all, just curious and anxious go steal some food ....
As it was very misty that day, the background faded away...

Wonderful family group with very expressive faces., Djozz.
The details are sharp and well exposed.
It is kind of strange not to have any BG,
but still a great shot.
TFS. : )
