    Excellent. It’s appropriate that a vegetarian would be reading Gardening Australia.

    Really lovely – full of character. I love the little smirk on the gorilla’s face – almost like s/he’s suggesting s/he knows something we don’t! Great detail in the coat and you’ve handled the lovely lighting around the head to frame the face. I’ve read that the nose prints are different for each gorilla – it’s their identifying feature – and therefore very appropriate that we should capture a glimpse of this one here.

    Gorillas no better than to try and take over the world. They know that we should just live in harmony with it. Hence the Gardening Australia mag – GA don’t use poisons or harmful sprays. Brilliant photo Sharon…
