Siamang Gibbons

Location: Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo, N.S.W.

 no action; it was early afternoon and the sun was hot, that's when you take time out, on the shady side of a post
  





no-one was playing anymore

this one sat up and away,in the shade of the tree tops

You can see Rocketboy1950's u-tube video from this very zoo, with the Siamangs being very vocal and entertaining.

Those black coats would be very hot in the sun! I like the way the sun is glistening on the fur in your photos.
