Monkey Surprise

Part of why humans love triangles is that we learn from birth to watch the interaction between two eyes and one mouth and learn to read what it means. I see surprise in this monkey face, but the click of the shutter stops the context from showing itself. Photographers often shoot nature in continuous mode for this very reason. I have a series of expressions from this particular monkey in my archives, but this one amuses me with its assumed astonishment.
