Leap of faith

As evening approached, a troop of monkeys led by its leader jumped across these vast spaces between tall steep boulders at a temple near Hampi. Udayan froze this moment in a picture when one monkey was still in air. What gave it the courage to take such a leap of faith? Was it confidence in himself or blind faith in his leader?
