Today, the day after Christmas, was absolutely gorgeous! Clear skies and very little wind, which meant the chimpanzees got to spend some quality time on the hill. And a gorgeous day makes for beautiful photos of the chimpanzees.
Before taking a look at the photos below, be sure you’ve watched the video from yesterday’s holiday party. It’s our most shared video on Facebook, so you should probably check it out (and share it!) if you haven’t already.
I felt lucky to get these photos of Missy on one of my many walks around the hill today.
Missy was actually sitting still for a few minutes, seemingly taking it all in:
And, even more rare, she stood still for a few moments:
But just a few minutes – pretty soon she was off running, as per her usual pace:
It still thrills me to witness how much Missy enjoys running, and to know that she can now run as much as she wants.
