I was fortunate to be able to get several great photos of gorillas at my last trip to the zoo. This one was only a few feet away from me, just sitting, thinking. With a slight grin on his face, I have to wonder what his secret is.
This is a lowland gorilla, and like all the great apes, is an endangered species.
