Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

Taken on a busy Sunday at the local zoo, lots of kids and parents standing in front of the chimpanzee habitat. Had to stand on tippy-toes on a bench in back in order to see over their heads. Was shooting in low light with my 200mm lens at ISO 100; my speed was 1/8 of a sec. Chimp kept turning his head, looking at the straw then looking back at us. I took around 30 shots - this is the only one that was in focus.
