Chester Zoo - playful baby orang

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Luckynp, Sep 19, 2005.

  1. Visted Chester Zoo today and was lucky enough to encounter a playful baby orang-utan. I know it's not really possible, but he looks as if he was aware of the camera and was playing to it.

    Mike,

    I wouldn't be so sure that he was totally unaware, at least the you were watching him. These guys are a lot smarter than cats, and my cats sure know how to get attention. :biggrin:

    Nice shots. :smile:

    That's a great zoo. I used to live in that area and miss the (photographer-friendly) absence of wire fences.
