Artist's Description

Taken with a Canon 50D, Canon 100 – 400 L series lens @ 400mm, F5.6, shutter speed 1/160 second ISO500, edited in Photoshop

Whilst in Kent on holiday we visited several wildlife reserves, this shot was taken at Howletts Wild animal park , they have the largest selection of captive gorillas in the world. This Silverback was in a large cage with several other gorillas.

A silverback is an adult male gorilla, typically more than 12 years of age and named for the distinctive patch of silver hair on his back. A silverback gorilla has large canine teeth that come with maturity. Blackbacks are sexually mature males of up to 11 years of age. (Wikipedia)
