One of the Orangutans at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota. This place was such a delight: great animal environments, lots of overview areas where there were no wire nor glass obstructions and friendly volunteer workers who were absolutely in love with the place. The Minnesota Zoo, about 20 miles away, also has great photographer friendly environments... the two zoos make for a great overnight zoo safari.
All primates must be a dream to photograph with all their different expressions. You did a great job! I may have to head to the zoo myself...
He had several within a minute or so... I will probably post some others from that shoot.
I see you have met my brother Richard .
We must be related... this is my second cousin, once removed!!!
Gorgeous portrait Richard
Beautiful capture, Richard. Nice expression in its face
Very nice job on this! He looks like he was in your studio.
