A close relative

By Steve Cribbin
Taken in the chimpanze house at Chester Zoo.
Zoom at 150 mm using a tripod as a monopod, to keep out of everyone's way.
Shot through glass, not very clean.
This one separated itself from the group for a bit of me-time, grooming.
I took several shots but think that this is the best.
