Journey of a body on this earth

Oakland Zoo, Monkeying Around


The other day when i was at the zoo with my camera club, I saw a couple of monkeys, one in his cage with his striking fur and the other hanging from a branch.  Here they are in all their glory.

  1. These are excellent photos Laura! The first photo – if only the fella could speak. The second photo is a real ham or show off. 😍🌟

  2. Is this what they call a glamour shot and a selfie. (feel free to delete Laura) I could not help myself. Great photography ! 🙂

  3. Love the portrait

  4. Love the fur on the first monk and the face on the second. The second monk looks like a real character.

  14. Beautiful shots, Laura. You certainly captured the monkeys very well, letting their hair shine in the spotlight. I’m sure they were hungry for some bananas but I don’t think you waved any in their face 😀 Congrats on your store, Laura. Up and running, well done 🙂
