This photograph was taken by Jon in Washington, DC, at The National Zoo, two years ago. He has captured an amazing shot and I for one really appreciate his sharing it with us on flickr.com
I would have loved watching him hit the water and swim about. I haven’t visited the zoo since the early 1980’s, with my sister and my niece in her stroller. Rachael is too grown up for strollers nowadays. We did have a good time and the reason I haven’t been back is that I do not like to see the animals in cages and I abhor the smell of the monkey area.
