Hampi ruins. We were about to get out of the car at the parking lot in front of one of the temples when we realized what was happening outside. This monkey jumped onto the seat of a parked motorcycle and expertly fished out a bottle of water. It unscrewed the top and drank....spilled a lot...but quenched its thirst. Then it littered the area by leaving the plastic bottle on the ground...oh the horror!!! I wish I had had the presence of mind to have moved to video mode but it all happened so quickly...I just got these three shots.
