Mountain Gorilla
(gorilla beringei beringei)
I find this female mountain gorilla in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park, Uganda.
After an hard walk in the forest (36 95% humidity) we met a 12 members family of gorilla.
It seems she's thinking to its future.
What a future?
Less than 700 gorilla remains in the Uganda/Rwanda area.
A number too little to have a future...

I love this shot Andrea!!!

Bravo Andrea! Bella foto.
Hai proprio bisogno di Photoshop per dare quel qualcosina in pi al dettaglio e contrasto.
Ciao. Maurizio.
Vedi di aggiungere qualche punteggio anche a me grazie.

Hi Andrea,
The tumbnail doesn't reveal anything, but the photo does. Excellent. This is a great photo with excellent sharpness on the Gorilla. We don't see them in the wild on TN often.

Hi Andrea,
Beautiful shot!! Glad you went for the trek in Uganda, the money goes towards the gorilla conservation. I did the trek in Rwanda and got many beautiful pics of these wonderful, gentle, beautiful, lovable and sadly endangered mammals. It is an experience of a life time to see these animals in the wild .. and I am ever so glad that I did it.
Thanks for sharing :)

Ciao Andrea
Belle image, on a envie de regarder dans la mme direction que ce gorille. Le flou du premier plan augmente le jeu de cache cache avec l'animal. Bonne prise.

What a great shot Andrea. The eyes stand out under the soft focus surround. Thank you for your hard work and taking the time to show this to us. I am sure we all hope they have a future. Lovely shot.
