[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I like the Orangatangs expression. The main reason I posted this though is that this was a hand held shot inside the Brookfield Zoo's primate house. The house is huge and this animal was probably 200ft away from me. So i was using a 500mm fl with an exposure time of 1/60 and no tripod or monopod. I did lean against a metal railing.
