I always feel a little sad when I see gorillas in captivity.There’s a definite emotional connection across the divide. Well from my side to theirs at least. Empathy, sympathy, love.

Such an elegant and tasteful portrayal of our fellow creature! Wonderful expression on his face, and I love the effect of B & W for the mood! Well done my friend!

Hi Warren. I know what you mean. It’s a bit of a catch 22. Either way makes me a little sad. Thanks for your comment and all the best for the New Year to you too :)

Great shot, most gorillas in captivity are part of a breeding programme but i know exactly what you mean! :)
Thank you Meladana :)
I don’t like seeing any animals caged really but know sometimes it’s for their own good. Good shot Maree
