A normal chill Tuesday with a side of giving! Most individuals were interested in taking naps or hanging out where the camera does not reach, but I managed to get photos of chimps that were very much OK with some close ups. While I’m still working on my photo taking skills, I was specially surprised with Rayne letting me grab a close up. She was very patient while I struggled to get the camera to focus how I wanted it to and seemed to not mind my lack of skills. On the other group, Honey B and Mave spent a significant amount of time together. Every time I would walk past the front rooms they were either grooming or playing, a very relaxing afternoon for the two I would say. Honey B also gave me a chance to capture a close up with my phone which explains the quality or lack of but still I was very grateful for her kindness.
