Taken at the National Zoo in DC. I was patient as the young orangutan played and jumped all around. Finally taking a break, I snapped this photo. It's behavior at play so reminds me of how our children play, reminding me we're not so far apart genetically. They just happen to be behind glass. My heart went out realizing it will never know real freedom.
