It was a beautiful day in Wellington today and after a few meetings in the morning I decided it was time to get out the camera, so we headed off to the zoo. Wellington Zoo is constantly changing and even though we go there often there is always something different to photograph.

 These photos are from one enclosure – the baboons. Usually I shoot then through the glass viewing window but today they weren’t co-operating and were no where to be seen. Well not close enough to photograph well anyway. I was just about to give up when I noticed a couple of feet up against the wire netting further down the enclosure. 

While I was busy focusing on the old pair of feet and hands, my ever patient husband pointed out that just a few feet to the right there was a cute little baby baboon imitating the bigger one. Normally I would go out of my way to avoid having the cage or netting visible in the image but today it worked. I have entitled this post “Captive” because it is what they are.
