Somewhat cheerful

A young Barbary macaque having fun with observing how my zoom lens moved in and out and the shutters opened and closed. He was really fascinated and demonstrated various facial expressions in the process, fom curious, interested, fascinated, mischievous, to cheerful, and eventually also bored. *g* But he "sat" for me (or I for him?) for about fifteen minutes, so he's forgiven for eventually being bored by yet another tall two-legger.
It was also one of the most fascinating photography sessions I ever had with an animal.

In or out

Sculptors say sculpting is easy, as all you need is to remove the material of the figure already hidden within your material.
So decide for yourself if this cute bear was hidden in the wood, or carved out of it, or if it's in the process of crawling out of a tree tunnel.
