I took this shot of this baboon in Singapore zoo - which despite being one of the best zoos in the world is still after all a zoo - and the paradox is that whilst it is a fantastic privilege to get so close to so much wildlife, the look on this baboon's face to me nearly brings me to tears.... it says so much about captivity.

Dear Doug,
Grand close up of Baboon with soft image & depicting sadness of confinement as per your note. I have done a WS, hope you like it.
Regards-Subhash

Hi Doug,
Good portrait of the baboon. But as you say do they belong in captivity ? Excellent detail but the eyes give a differnt story.Well done . TFS.Are they happy or not ...who knows ??????
However a good shot. Nicely taken.
