Capuchin Iguana Feat

I photographed these white-faced capuchin monkeys in Manuel Antonio National Park, Costa Rica. The setting is like something out of paradise: palm trees, golden sand, the sea, hot, sunny and, the icing on the cake: the capuchins. It doesn't happen every day, but that day, the capuchins managed to caputure and kill an iguana. They took their time to eat it which gave me plenty of time to get this shot.
