West Caucasian tur

"As you may know, some of the stereotyped behaviors exhibited by autistic children are also found in zoo animals who are raised in a barren environment. "
~ Temple Grandin

When I saw this bearded fellow, a West Caucasian tur, resting on his outcrop I saw a painting. I make no claim that my photographs rival any great art pieces but the composition was fitting for a painting. Plus the monochromatic nature of the photograph and abundance of textures worked for me.

Having been a little higher up would have helped make the shot a little more interesting but I am not about to drag a small ladder around the zoo.

I’ve left the photo a little tinted toward the earth tones from its true color.
