Pay Attention To Me by tleach0608 Pay Attention To Me by tleach0608
Taken at the Cleveland MetroParks Zoo - Cleveland, OH

This was taken during a whirlwind spin through the Cleveland Zoo after its Volunteer Safari meet where I successfully interviewed to become a service volunteer there. Normally I'll walk past the baboons and see what they're doing but not take any photos, but this day I captured this moment where the female baboon is trying to attract the attention of the male.

It was a pseudo-difficult shot to get because to get this angle I had to be on one end of the exhibit, shooting probably at a 20 degree angle to the glass which can cause a lot of distortion. But it turned out and I liked how the shadows and light helped to fill and surround them while her hand is placed on the rock just so.

Great shot; as you say, very human. I can almost hear the conversation.:)

Thank you!! When I saw it, I was touched--the male is usually pacing around or being obnoxious while the female watches him or fiddles with something in the exhibit. Today I almost caught a human moment which always gets to me, especially with primates. =D
