Hey! Wait a minute!
That isn't Pepsi!

This was taken at the Metro Toronto Zoo.
My mom and I got there just in time for the Orangutan feeding. It was pretty amazing watching them interact with their keeper. They were fed all sorts of fruits and lastly, they were given a closed bottle of orange juice!

One of the orangutans knew exactly how to get the cap off, twisting it until it was removed. The other struggled for a while, but finally got it off too.

**Post Pro**
- cloned out a few pieces of straw
- increased contrast

Hi Pamela,

A great shot, I love the use of DOF to blur the background and the fact that it's grey ish adds to the mood of the picture and also highlights the bottle too.

well done, Davy

Could be an add Pamela !! , great capture !!

Hi Pamela, Cool monkey with a cool drink and a super cool shot. I love watching the apes they are very interesting to aly the least. Thanks for sharing.

Very cool ! great daily life picture in the life of an Orangutan.


:) Nice shot, nice difference of colors with the bottle standing out. Nice title too. I like the colors of the Orangutan too and the angle of the shot with a minimum of the face. A full face shot would be possibly be good too but it's a nice funny shot the way it stands. Nice work.

Hi Pamela!
Hahaha..! The monkey is so cool and funny.
I like monkeys, they are doing things just like peoples. All monkeys are cute to me.
I don't know why. :))
Take care.
