As we started our hike into Carara National Park, we heard and saw some movement and went a ways off the regular trail to find the monkeys that were presumably the source of the noise.  Sure enough, we came across several White-faced Capuchin, mostly high up in the trees, where it was almost impossible to shoot them.  But one ventured out on its own, and came down low enough for us to get some shots, relatively unobstructed.  The light was quite limited, so rather than bump the ISO way up, I opted to try a few shots with full flash.
