Photographer's Note

The Vienna Zoo, located on the grounds of Schloss Schönbrunn, has wonderfull year-round displays, including this one from the Himalayas. The pen is shared by mountain goats and snow monkeys, who have evidently developed a symbiotic relationship - the monkeys pick nits off the goats for food, helping both. I saw the monkeys playing on and around this stationary goat and began snapping as many shots as I could; this one came out as perfectly as I could imagine, with the monkeys almost posed atop a goat who appears to be looking directly into the camera, with almost a resigned look on his face.
