Shutter: 1/50th
Date Uploaded: May 24, 2009

They just had a baby Ape born at Colchester zoo and I have been trying to get a semi-decent shot of the little bugger for ages.

Shot this at ISO800 through thick glass with my 300mm and the 1.4X f5.6/ 1/50th

I have no idea how this will do, I am submitting a few Ape shots recently but I am facinated by these great Apes, the more I visit them the more I love them, sorry if you are getting tierd of my Ape photos.
