Esta foto assim como a anterior tb foi tirada no ZOO de São Paulo, e na mesma ocasião.
Me intrigou o que poderia ser aquele pedaço de alguma coisa que a mamãe chipanzé estava tentando extrair de dentro do tubo, perguntando a um funcionário do ZOO me foi dito que a alimentação dos chipanzés não era dada simplesmente através da forma usual em que se colocam as frutas e verduras em um recipiente para que a partir dai sejam consumidas pelos macacos; e sim que estavam colocando os alimentos em locais propositadamente onde estes tivessem alguma dificuldade para extrai-los e assim força-los a desenvolver algum trabalho mental para se alimentar...
achei interessante..

This photo as the previous one as was also took in the Sao Paulo ZOO, and in the same occasion. It intrigued me what could be that piece of some red thing that the mother chimpanzee was trying to extract of inside of the pipe, asking to an employee of the zoo he said me that the feeding of chimpanzees was not given simply through the usual form where if they place the fruits and vegetables in a container so that from they are consumed there by the monkeys; and that they were placing foods in places where these animal had some difficulty for extracts them and thus force them to develop some mental work to feed itself…
I found it interesting!

I like the baby monkey too :)

This is a strong image Taba. I like the three horizontal logs and the one vertical framing your subject. A touch of red always adds a spark to an image. The baby is adorable. I like that neither are looking at the camera. It makes us think about what each are doing/looking at.

Evelynn : )

Hello Tabajara,
Excellent capture. The baby is very cute! The composition and POV are very good. The timing of the photo is also important, it gives a very tender picture
