FANTASTIC Face!! They're such amazing creatures~ love how you've captured him... (& totally agree on your opinion of the zoos).

Annemeet thank you for your comment.

Danielle this Silver Back really got to me I felt like I could feel his depression and see it on his face I am not really anti Zoo but this guy needed to be wild. I still feel for this guy and the vibe he was giving off to this today when I see this picture but it is more than the facial expression it was the whole of the body languauge that got to me. But in the wild he most likely would be dead. This guy did not want to be stared at was an over powering feeling I got, I felt he just wanted to be home in the jungle hence the title of the photograph. Jerry

I have the same emotions regarding zoos as you described here! I love the way you captured this gorilla!

Thank you Ruth I was overwhelmed by the Gorillas emotion I keep thinking about them and my visit was three weeks ago.

I just LOVE this image! what an attitude :) Excellent!
