    Another fantasic capture! He really is just so magnificent isn’t he!?

  • Thanks Tracy! Yes he is and is well worth the travelling I do to try to see him!

    I am really hoping and waiting for him to ‘father’ I can`t wait to capture a baby gorilla ..never seen one in real life.
    Thanks for the fave :)

    Thanks so much for that information. I had no idea it was behind glass. EXCELLENT.

  • Your welcome! And thank you again.
    Unfortunatley 98% of my photos are from behind either glass or wired enclosures I nearly always write this in the descriptions though :)
