What are they thinking?

After visiting animal kingdom with my class I gave my students a writing assignment.  One student wrote of how he would rescue the monkeys from their captivity.  It made me think a little about how bored the must be.  I get antsy when I am at home for too long, and I choose my home.  

The same student looked at a picture of a monkey today and informed me that it looked just like his father.  He explained in detail how his dad has the same smile, and has similar body hair.    
I laughed and suggested that he NOT share that with his dad.

I always wondered if they were sad or not too? I hope not...

Those are two beautifully expressive shots of this monkey. All the man made swings and toys in the world cannot replace freedom. It is sad.

@Carolyn
I agree zoo's are a tough call for me. It is well worth seeing these animals in their natural habitat! The picture is really nice though!

I had a nice visit at this blog Thanks!
