Shielding her eyes from the hot Summer Sun, she still had to watch the crowd watching her, I love the Orangutans of Como Zoo, when they are outside I myself “can’t not watch” too!!

    Ok this is priceless. The last time I was at Como, I was so upset. A young girl, around age 11( old enough to know better) threw her plastic water bottle in the pen.. Everyone standing around, gasped and the parents gave her a good scolding but then later laughed as the Mom came and started to play with it.. they weren’t very bright but to each their own :)

  • Thanks Angela, I’m assuming you were referring to the humans not being very bright, right? LOL! I’ve seen people do some stupid and irresponsible things at the zoos too. If you were referring to the orangutan, well that’s a different story! Glad you liked it!

    Yes always the “humans” who are the least brightest.. we’re idiots compared to them :) again great shot!

    I agree with Angela, we should be ashamed of telling monkeys that we descend from them, they are better than us, and most clever, no doubt.
