Sometimes . . . They Never Show Up

The early afternoon light in the Mandrill habitat at the San Diego Zoo can be particularly nice this time of year . . . and last Saturday was no exception.  A friend and I spent about an hour standing there waiting for Jasper, the big male Mandrill, to wander over to where we were.  We could tell that the light would be about perfect for a portrait of him, especially when he got close to his swinging rope thingy.  

He stayed on the other side, pretty much out of our sight, the entire time.  But, the light on the swinging rope thingy was still really nice . . . even if there wasn't a Mandrill to go with it.
