One Good Shot

I feel I’ve been overdoing it with a surfeit of photos lately, so I’m trying to pare down a little. As I was hanging around the orangutan enclosure last week, this orangutan, who was in the doorway, not seeming particularly interested in coming out into the horrible heat of the sunlit yard (and who would be?), heard a gaggle of children walking by and turned to look at them.

I really like the orangutan’s expression, which seems both tolerant and slightly world-weary (“Ah, kids…”). Or maybe what I like best is the rakish angle at which the stem dangles from his/her lips.
