[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Took this Mandrill picture at the Oregon Zoo. The part about it that was a challenge is that the picture was taken through a thick sheet of glass and a cyclone fence that was about 4 feet beyond the glass. What made it work was the Mandrill was in the back of the enclosure, I would guess 18-20 feet from the fence. The picture was taken at 200mm and an ISO of 800. There is quite a bit of grain in the picture but under the conditions I was pleased. Have a great day

Hi Jeff,
what a strong character, excellently approached from slightly below to show its dominant pose, showing its impressively colourful natural make-up, an unsurpassed challenge for every human face paint.
With thanks, and best regards,
