a baby monkey at our local zoo. ..when I saw it sitting pressed against the bars of the cage like this..I just had to capture this image..somehow it just doesn't look like it is happy being where it is.This image sort of tore at me a bit.
But did want to share it with you all.
feel free to comment/critique. one can always stand to learn more.
thanks for all previous comments/critiques..very much appreciated.

You're right- he's sad. Hate zoos. He should be out there in the jungle climbing trees and having a ball. Lovely photo although it made me sad.
