This was the leader of the Gorillas. He carefully watched as the others around him played and rightfully took whatever he wanted when he wanted it. He didn’t smile a whole lot but certainly was full of emotion.

    That is one mean look, it would intimidate any ape or human. Great shot of this amazing animal.

    I don’t know what it is about the Silver Backs but their expression (or lack there of) is just so powerful and you have captured that very well.

  • Jeffrae, so kind you are! Really appreciate it! Hey by the way Lina and I are thinking maybe the end of March or early April for a shoot!
