5. Pushed in and swimming

This series follows a troupe of Macaques that live in the Monkey Forest in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

I had never seen monkeys bathing before, nor had I seen them engage in organised play.

The young macaques in this series were engaged in a group game. Rushing up branches overhanging the water, they pushed and shoved each other screaming their heads off, until one was flung into the water. Then back up the branch for another turn. Some young ones, too impatient to wait to be pushed, flung themselves in the water anyway.

Watching them was hilarious. They were obviously having a great deal of fun.
