Orangutan Is a Genius Photographer
Ape photographer.jpgMonkey News!

It's been a little quiet in the monkey community lately. That chimp ripping a lady's face off really hurt us. Here's a story to put faith back into the monkeys.

33-year-old orangutan Nonja lives at the Vienna Zoo. The kids love her. So do photogs. Nonja is an amateur photographer. Wielding a Samsung ST 1000 digital camera to document her daily activities. She's very gifted. Considering that she is a primate, she makes that criminal Annie Leibovitz look like a real bum. You got John Lennon to get naked and spoon Yoko? Big whoop. This is an ape who's shooting stills like Matthew Brady.

In fact, Nonja has her own freaking Facebook page! Her art is inspiring the world and the monkey is adding hundreds of fans by the hour. She's closing in on 10,000 followers!

I don't know if we can become friends with force of photography/nature, but we all should.

"Considering that she is a primate, she makes that criminal Annie Leibovitz look like a real bum."

I hate to point out that Annie Leibovitz is a primate as well. As are you and I.
