A Barbary macaque sits nonchalantly on a railing on the Rock above Gibraltar harbour.

David adds:

“The Barbary Macaques that inhabit the Rock of Gibraltar are commonly known as ‘Rock apes’, but are in fact monkeys – the only monkeys found in the wild in Europe. Legend has it that when they leave Gibraltar, so will the British.”
