Thoughtful Orangutan

Isn't she beautiful!

I think she was coming on to me a little bit.

One of the great things about the Atlanta Zoo is that many of their exhibits, like the orangatan habitat, don't have a zoo-cage-like fence around them. The orangs were separated from us by a deep, narrow trench - I can't remember if there was some sort of barrier at the bottom of the trench or not - but it allowed for an unobstructed, straight-on view.

Now, I'm not an animal-rights type, but I must admit, when I see a primate look this intelligent, I get a twinge of guilt about having them in a zoo.
