An outing with friends from PhotoLim87 to the valley of the apes near Poitiers. The weather forecast was terrible leading up to the ddate and the day itself started with torrential rain about the time we needed to leave. However, always optimistic, we set off nayway and, in the end, the day was really pleasant apart from a thundertorm at around 4pm. We were even able to eat outside at lunchtime.
The big apes are separated from the public by water filled ditches, so no bars or wire fences and the smaller monkeys are free to wander in the woods among the visitors. An arrangement ideal for photographers.
