Two Black and White Colobus Monkeys. The little one is five months old.

I know, it has nothing to to with Chinese New Year, but the shot was too cute not to enter.

I was pretty lucky. The they were in area with an unobstructed view, and I could get a clear shot without glare off the glass.

The baby monkey was quite a performer. He/she would nurse for a while, scramble around the enclosure, swing on her tail, and return to nursing to start the cycle over again. The mother hardly moved the entire time.

The light is beautiful as are the subjects. I have a hard time getting past the obvious zoo setting, nothing a shallower depth of field wouldn't fix but you may not have such a lens in your arsenal. Still an 8.

Funny to look at. That expression on the mother's face is priceless. 8 from me. I give you the blue Dragon Award.' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/160000-164999/163081/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1173261.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/160000-164999/163081/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1173261.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Your Monkey child is brimming with bonhomie and fairly bursting with ... Monkeyshines. Nice image.
