A wonderful capture of her. Love her expression even if it does make me sad. She does seem to be wondering how she landed in a zoo and isn't in the jungle swinging from trees...........Sandy

Exactly my thoughts - beautiful portrait and I'm just hoping that I'm wrong in attributing human emotions to the sorrowful look of her eyes.
