Thanks! I like it too. It was a little hard to get because this monkey was close to the side of the enclosure, but the sunlight coming through from above gives it a neat effect.

I use a Nikon D60. It is just about the only digital slr I can afford, and while it is not the best, it gets the job done. I usually don't use a flash. I like to use natural lighting whenever possible, and in this case I was worried a flash would ruin the contrast caused by the light coming in through the top of the enclosure.
