James and Holly

This is one of my favourite photos from the zoo (I am still going through the rest to put up, there are soooo many)! 

The new Chimpanzee enclosure had us all enthralled. Especially Holly, who was human raised and loves to come up to the enclosure’s window. She played with Ellie, copied Ethan’s hand gestures and spent quality time with James. He was so very taken with her, it was like watching someone fall in love at first sight and it was completely beautiful.

Join in with more Point & Shoot fun over at Fat Mum Slim.


  1. Sounds like fun, loving the photos!

  2. My fave at our zoo is the gorillas as well.

  3. Small kids and chimps understand each other more than us adults ever can!

    Glad to hear that Holly and James got to spend some time up close.

  4. Lovely pics, We're huge fans of all apes/monkeys. 🙂
