Nice composite. Be careful -- he looks like he is about to take you to the observation deck of the Empire State Building -- without an elevator.

Just like 'Gorilla's In The Mist". You are the new Dian Fossey.
I see Doug has taken one shot with the camera - can you get him to take any more and get the photography bug? Wouldn't it be funny if you could get him hooked to the point where you would actually argue with each other about what lens to get next! Yes, I know I am dreaming.
