    OK... the story... I shot this one at Hilo, Hawaii at the Rain Forest Zoo, which is literally in a rain forest. The caging all has this green fungus that grows on it because of the climate, making it REALLY hard to shoot through... I used my 55-200 VR, shot it ALMOST wide open to blur the caging as much as possible (wide open didn't give me enough depth of field to get the face all in focus), and that was about all I can do... I cropped a bit out (changed it to a 4x3 format) but other than that it is pretty well right out of the camera...

    I can imagine, and kinda see, the troubles you had. But overall, a nice shot of a very cute animal :)
