Lookin' Down on Creation ....

The Barbary macaque population in Gibraltar is the only one in the European continent, and, unlike that of North Africa, it is thriving.  At present, some 300 animals in five troops occupy the area of the Upper Rock area of the Gibraltar Nature Reserve.

Yes little fellow
the world lies at your feet
there are challenges to meet
dragons to slay ~
let your dreams take you
willy-nilly where they may

  8. OH, please:
    do not slay
    the dragons.
    Places there are
    in which dragons
    are considered
    creatures of good fortune.
    As one can
    befriend the night,
    one can
    also befriend
    dragons.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  12. Being isolated and presumably under conservation laws the population should sustain. Wonderful pics Helen!
