Wildlife Park
We have been away for a few days to the South Lakes Wildlife Park at Dalton in Furness in Cumbria. This is a shot of the Howler monkey, and was taken indoors through the the glass compartment he was in, once they
start start howling the noise was so deafening that we didn't! stay indoors very long. The park I can certainly recommend to anyone who ever fancies a visit. It was established in 1994 by David Gill and his family & which is now undergoing a multi-million pound expansion, which involves the introduction of Afican elephants.

Interesting shot helen. I think I would have perhaps ctaken this with the monkey further to the right so that his head was closer to the centre line leaving him room to look into so to speak. The viewer tends to look at the head so leaving it like this (IMHO only) makes a lot of the RHS redundant.

Fantastic shot Helen! Love the detail when you enlarge - 'his' fur looks so soft!

Thank you Frank I see what you mean, unfortunately this time it was a case of catching him still as he was all over the place, it was only for a second he was still for me to get the photo, but I but I shall try and remember the next time as to what you have said.

Thank you also Babs for your comment.
