Welchman Hall Gully

Wild Monkeys Caught on Camera

This video was shot at Welchman Hall Gully – with a broken handycam! Great lighting – always guaranteed in Barbados, especially in the early morning or late afternoon – and fascinating subjects are often all you need to create a video of your own.

Just remember to keep the camera (or phone) still and let the action unfold in front of you.

The monkeys needed no directing. They are natural, uninhibited performers. If they don’t appear for their morning meal of ripe bananas, you might catch them swinging on the vines or grooming each other in the trees. Keep ’em peeled! (That’s your eyes, leaves the bananas for the monkeys…).

Read about the “tree that walks in the night”, also found at Welchman Hall Gully.
