Little Sad Eyes

Unfortunately, many professionals and editors feel that "zoo" photography is fake in some way. I disagree. I bring my Nikon 200-400mm and capture amazing images like this baby gorilla at the Ft. Worth TX Zoo. I see things others don't see. I can get in close and expressions others miss. The key is catching the eyes as illustrated here.
