The World I See - Buffy Redsecker

Wild Captive

This monkey lives in a zoo near Banos, Ecuador. He was listless and bored, though not hungry. I was at the zoo with a friend who had worked as the Vetrinarian there in the past. He goes periodically to check up on the animals. This is the only photograph that I took the whole time we were there. I am not a fan of zoos, and do not frequent them, however this monkey's sad and resigned eyes pulled me into the cage with him, and I felt he deserved the opportunity to express himself to a larger audience.
