A great Natural History shot. Spot on exposure and colour. As a pictorial photograph I find for me the lower "chin"? part competes and without it the chimp has a greatly improved direct gaze. A bit of photoshop brightening of the eyes also helps this effect. #818730

Destruction of habitat and illegal trade may well be the reason why the only place where we can photograph these animals in the near furure is in the zoo as I did. I you can, help them.
