    Well... actually, she has no hair at all... it was a skin disease. She's a nice chimp though.

    Poor thing! Must make her more susceptible to the cold.

    Nice shot though. The exposure on the face is so sharp.

    Aww, poor girl. It's amazing to see the muscles that are usually hiding underneath all that fur though. Great shot!

    I can see it now.

    Wow - she looks quite surreal - almost like a sculpture like that, poor thing.

    Wow, that is an amazing shot. It is such a different view of a chimpanzee that I've never seen.

    Her arms look exactly like any body builder or weight lifter's arms (besides the color of course)

    How can you not look at that pic and see the resemblance to humans? The muscle structure in the arms is the exact same! (sorry to get all evolutionary, but I don't remember evolution being a prohibited subject!:))

    Very nice. I feel terrible for her. Good job with the photography aspect but do you know if the skin disease is painful for her? =(

    The TC-17 is the Nikon Tele-converter that extends the focal range of the 70-200 up to to 340mm.

    It works pretty well, is fairly sharp, and both the autofocus and VR still work with the 1.7 (the VR doesn't work with the 1.4 and the 2.0 TC's because they are older designs).

    The aperture is reduced to 4.5 maximum.

    I didn't need it for this particular shot, but I left it on because changing it in and out is a pain if you do it 40 times a day.
