Relaxing on the grass

This beautiful gorilla was enjoying his free time by relaxing on the grass and eating some leaves he found there. He was crowded by a large group of people but fortunately I was able to stick my 70-300 between them and take a few portraits of him.

BTW after processing a few more photos taken with 5D MK III I have some further observations. The colour reproduction is slightly better than with 5D MK II (the colours are more natural to me). Also noise tends to be lower despite what some lab tests show (it's always good to compare not only test photos but also real life ones).
