Hooded Capuchin Photo

Hooded Capuchin

This hooded capuchin was foraging in the monkey island at Denver Zoo in Colorado. Perhaps there were many but I was able to spot two of them that were on my side of the island.

I was watching their activities for about 15-20 minutes before I pulled my camera and pointed at them. They were not shy, and not scared as they are used to seeing a lot of visitors every day. Here’s the exposure:

Canon EOS 40D
EF300mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x
ƒ/5.6 420.0 mm 1/160 400

This guy with two pine cones in its hand was in a perfect position for me to capture this beautiful monkey portrait in its pseudo natural habitat.
