Gorilla beringei beringei
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) is one of the three subspecies of the Eastern Gorilla. There are two groups. One is found in the Virunga volcanic mountains of Central Africa, within 4 national parks: Mgahinga, in south-west Uganda; Volcanoes, in north-west Rwanda; and Virunga and Kahuzi-Biéga, in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The other is found in Uganda's Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. Some say that the Bwindi group in Uganda is a 3rd species, though no description has been finished.|
In the photo we can see the smallest gorilla of the group Umubano formed by 9 members. Zirikana is its name and if I don’t make a mistake it had 10 weeks in the moment of the photo.

You have captured really nice expression of this little gorilla.
Nice capture with good eye contact. I would have liked more Dof for the branch in front of him so that it would look more as if he was looking around it but it looks as if the light was low.
amazing mountain gorilla, TFS Ori
Nice shot of a majestic creature.
