Capuchins can be very expressive, this one looked really grumpy last I visited…

It was also very active moving from right to left of its enclosure and given the little light available it wasn’t easy to capture. Still I managed a few pleasing images. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to capture the turn of the Capuchin: at times when they change direction they will execute a small dance extending their body and arms in the air and turning. That dance step will be my next objective when I visit their enclosure again.
