And then almost the moment I took these photographs, they disappeared. I became increasingly worried that with all the ongoing development around us, they had become inconvenient for someone, but then two weeks ago a single male Colobus started to make regular visits to our trees and this amounted to even bigger worry for us. We wondered if he was somehow the sole survivor of some nasty incident? What on earth could have happened to 'our family'?
Then yesterday, the perfect Christmas gift; I looked into the trees at dawn and the whole family were diving from branch to branch. What a joy to have everyone back!
