Day at the Zoo
We reached the orangutan display a few minutes before closing time. They must have been super excited about the day's end because they were showing off like no one's business. They were swinging and jumping, but I just couldn't get a good shot. The glass was thick and scratched and wasn't conducive to photos. So I decided to try to get one of the active guys to come closer my way. I lightly drummed on the glass with my fingernails. When I did that, he charged at the glass and hit it right where my face was. I nearly wet my pants, jumping back and screaming! Everyone laughed at my expense. The orangutan was apparently amused and continued playing with us. He screamed right at Big Sis and played around with Hubby. (Maybe he saw a resemblance there?) But before I could get any good pictures, the zookeeper kicked us out. We will definitely visit that display first next time.
