These creatures are both magnificent and scary as heck! The size of them even when you are safely behind bars or glass is still intimidating. But I can’t help but feel a bit sad that their world is now confined to whatever amount of area they are allotted by a zoo. The zoo takes magnificent care of them and all that but I do feel a bit strange when I can look into the eyes of an animal and almost “feel” what it may be feeling. Such is the case with this image.
Even though it was shot through bars I was fortunate to capture his eyes. Eyes that for all the world look like he is thinking something. Maybe something along the lines of “I’m am so going to mess with those funny creatures.” A couple of chimps did scare some humans very much by slapping at their glass enclosures. I’ve seen every Planet of the Apes movie so I’m leery 😉
