Koko is not always in the mood to have her picture taken. But then who hasn”t found themselves in front of a camera at a time when they just weren”t feeling photogenic. Maybe it”s that particle of food on Koko”s mouth, or the little tuft of hair that she didn”t have time to groom. In any event, we”re lucky to have such a clear close-up of Koko, even if it doesn”t reveal her best disposition. Koko”s eyes still reveal the intelligence and warmth that make it practically impossible not to love her.
“Say cheese” doesn”t always work.
