The O Line

The National Zoo has an orangutan transport system called the O Line.  Using the O Line, orangutans can travel 490 feet through the air, between two exhibit spaces, swinging right over zoogoers' heads.  In all our trips to the Zoo, we had never seen the O Line in use, but a couple weeks ago, we caught the orangutans in action.
It was so cool!  {And it gave me the perfect opportunity to play around with silhouetting, which is something I've been wanting to work on.}  Little Guy was pretty amazed, and kept warning the apes to "Beeeee Caaay-ful!"
I'm so glad we finally got to see the O Line in use!
