The elusive proboscis

Today we spent our afternoon looking for the elusive proboscis monkey in Malaysia. We were in a boat with a dozen others and all us waited with bated breath.

We finally got a glimpse after what seemed like ages but was hardly ten minutes. We saw another as a bonus just before our boat turned. I was so awestruck that we didn't even try taking a picture. (Also was difficult to capture them.)

Maybe the monkey was trying to remind me that life will go on even if I don't keep recording it. The experience was beautiful and memorable. Like the first dolphin I saw last year.

It was a very beautiful ten minutes as I noticed so many things that I usually lose in my attempt to capture the moment in my phone.
