[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a baby chimp born at Monkey world in Dorset.

I go to Dorset for my holidays each September and visit Monkey World when ever possible. They do such wonderful work rescuing badly treated monkey's by amongst others photographers.

They cannot be released into the wild, so here they have huge enclosures where they live in groups and seem to live very happily.

This baby was being hand reared and when the time comes will be introduced to a group to grow up amongst friends.

He had just had his feed and was having a cuddle with his keeper. They were behind glass and it was not very bright so I had to up the ISO to 1600 there is a little bit of reflection from the glass to the left But I think this shot is all about the eyes.

If you are ever down Dorset way I would recommend Monkey world to anyone.

The focus is just where you need it - on the eyes. The eyes are fabulous with lovely light
