[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For a long time the image most people had of a gorilla encounter included chest pounding, roaring, charging, and big, bared teeth. But researchers studying gorillas reveal a very different picture of mountain gorillas. The animals are peaceful, gentle, social, and mainly vegetarian creatures. The occasional ferocious-looking, impressive displays are generally from a male gorilla protecting his family group from a threat.

Quelle magnifique créature.....Malheureusement dans un Zoo. J'aime la composition de ton image malgré tout.

Hi David

Nicely composed shot. Unfortunately it is out of focus, but thanks for sharing this grand looking beast anyway.
