Taken at Chester Zoo yesterday. I didn't make a note of the species and I haven't had time to look it up this morning, sorry.
It looks as if I've de-saturated the BG, but I haven't. Other than a crop, a slight curves adjustment and a bit of sharpening this is how it came out of the camera.

Many thanks to Ade Osman and Annette (annettep38) for yesterday's UAs. Both much appreciated.
