I love that face and the way he looks at us. Their expressions are one of the reasons they are a favorite to see. You do such incredible work with the animals and know how to bring out their beauty in color and details. Gorgeous work my friend. #1486929

He does look mischevious, Kathy! You tones, textures, detail, clarity, lighting & expression are exceptional, my friend! WTG!

Fabulous, fabulous capture of him - as always, Kathy! Such impressive detail and clarity and the lighting is terrific - I'm always amazed at how you get them to pose for you! Looks like you are having fun with your new lens!!! #10328618

Ekuba is four years old and the youngest in Memba's troop at the San Diego Zoo. He, of course, is the most playful of the group and is the most likely to interact with Zoo guests, especially children. To get your attention, he may bang on or toss mulch at the triple-paned glass panels to see what kind of reaction he can get!
