I and thousands of mothers with toddlers headed out to Woodland Park Zoo yesterday to celebrate the 80° temperatures. Although I went primarily to spend some time trying to capture some bird pictures that had seemed impossible to capture with a youngster in tow, I ended up spending more time watching the Orangutans than anything else.

I love the way this Old Man of the Woods


suddenly disappeared,

Orangutan hiding under gunny sack

though afterwards it felt like the woods themselves were watching us.
