    Oh My!

    You know how the word Awesome can be overused, and loses its context! Well, I cant tell you here right now – that this is bloody awesome. Awesome in the highest degree.
    Is this the same fella as in Dignified Steve? It sure looks like him. Do you know his name?

    I so love this, and have to have it on my wall with the other one, and the other two in my cart.

    When I was young living in NYC I use to go at lunch time to visit a very sad gorilla who was housed in the central park zoo (mostly in a small cage). He was so sad and his eyes told the story of his unhappiness there. So each day I would go talk to him a bit. Since then they closed that restrictive zoo and built a bigger zoo with more natural habitat. But it’s so nice to see these in the wild, I just wish they were more protected from pochers. The are truely our human brothers. Thanks for the wonderful photographs. Very lucky you are to visit them in their natural habitat.
