Langurs hangin' out

Here are some langur monkeys hanging out in old and shady places.
I'm not a real huge fan of monkeys.  They can be mean, steal your fruit, make a mess of your trash, chase you down the street with a laundry know, a general menace.  But langurs are usually pretty peaceful and they keep their distance.
These ones were just sitting around picking fleas.  They didn't mind being photographed at all, but I was too chicken to get any closer.
It's fairly common to spot monkeys, but it's still a novelty to me, especially when they are hanging out in old ruins.  I almost missed the ones in the trees--their natural habitat--because I didn't think to look there.  But it makes sense, doesn't it?  Monkeys in trees.
Nice, quiet ones.
