Oh? And all along I thought this was just a series of images of Rob consorting with his muse.   ;D

What's that old saying?

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.  ;D

The last two images show the monkey tasting it, then spitting it out.

As an aside, eye focus worked on them. It also worked on Japanese macaques. Not as well as on humans, but still better than nothing. Haven't had a chance to try it on great or lesser apes yet.

Also, it turns out monkeys have fingerprints. Never actually thought about that until I saw the patterns while processing the photos.
