Curious Gibbon

Smithsonian National Zoological Park

Usually I avoid photos at the zoo that show fences or bars.
This gibbon came forward and looked so intensely at me that I had to take its photo.
You can see my reflection in its eye.

Taken handheld.... the shutter speed was very slow even though I used an aperture of f/2.
The shallow depth of field due to the wide aperture caused the gibbon's nose to be out of focus.

Canon EOS 350D ,Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM
1/80s f/2.0 at 135.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original
