I think of all the apes I have seen, the Silverback Gorillas are one of the most interesting. Their facial expressions are amazing. This fellow looked like he was contemplating whether to go get some more goodies (he had been eating some kind of snack that left the green dust on his face), sun himself with a nap or go hide.
I have tried for years to get a good capture and I finally got it. They say patience is a virtue, but sometimes I find it to be a pain in the lower part of my back. I hope to get more later. For now, I am pleased. :o)
