Snow Monkeys

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Karen Galley

I try to go to the zoo as often as possible to practise photography. I can sometimes watch and wait for hours for some action from the animals. I find the snow monkeys so fascinating to watch. Their large area is comletely enclosed by a fence, even the top. This makes for very unsightly backgrounds and the difficulty of not having the fence show up in the picture. I very much enjoy watching the interaction between this female monkey with her young child.

Location: This picture was taken at the zoo in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA
