On our last morning in Brazil, several of us took a walk with Zapa along a trail behind our hotel. This resulted in our only siting of the Brown-faced Capuchin. We saw a number of them climbing through the trees, making spectacular jumps, but these were mostly unshootable. After a little while, one was spotted in a tree moderately far away, much more in the open. I borrowed our guide's flash (thanks, Zapa!), as I had mine packed in the room for our departure later that morning, as the ambient light just wasn't enough to get a satisfactory image. Because the flash was directly on the camera, there was some "red-eye" to deal with in Photoshop.
