So, a moment by myself at the zoo and I walked up to this exhibit. A young monkey ran up from the back of the enclosure and jumped up onto the cage wires to have a look at me. The picture where he is leaning off toward the right of the frame was snapped just after that. It was toward the end of the day and I was the only one standing there for a moment. I suddenly had an idea; I put the camera on front facing mode (where you can take a selfie) and leaned way in for the monkey to see himself. He was mesmerized with his own image and watched himself moving around. I blindly snapped the other shots here of the monkey looking at himself. It was a very fun moment shared… and then he dribbled a piece of food out of his mouth and ran back to his mom.
