Another from the zoo. Not much time tonight but working my way through everybody!

The animals seem 'sad' to me. It comes through in the shots as I review them, but I suspect it's just me giving them human emotions. Maybe they're smart enough to realize that having everything provided for you is not a great existence!

Lordy it must be bed time!


PS: Lots of light behind him, so I popped a little flash to give him some detail in the shadows.

thanks guys. Yeah the background blurring pleased me, I wasn't expecting it given how close he was sitting to the bars.
