Gorilla

I have never seen the gorillas outside before, and this one just looks sad to me, he came roaring out grabbed a few mouthfuls of food, hurled a lump of earth in my general direction and then went back inside, mind you I would probably have done the same!
lovely shot. Fav!!!

Great shot. Great lighting on those hooded eyes. I have learned to keep my camera and lens hidden in the shade or I will get nothing but sour looks the back of the head or hands over the face.

what a fabulous photo of him

He does look sad.....love animals, and zoos always make me sad, except for the one here in San Diego where they seem to have free roam, even more than the humans! Beautiful capture!

Brilliant capture, I always think the gorillas look quite sad in a zoo.

You have certainly captured his well - kind of in portrait mode. Wonderful detail - shot gives off so much emotion.
posted March 6th, 2015  
This is a lovely shot... but I find the situation for these creatures, so close to us, very painful. I can hardly bear to look at him, although you did a great job shooting his portrait.
posted March 6th, 2015  
You have captured him so perfectly. Pensive and handsome. Fantastic image.

I found the same thing when I was at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. I got several shots of the gorillas but they all, to me, looked rather unhappy, moreso than the other animals although maybe it is just because it was harder for me to read the expressions of the other animals This is a nice shot however.

Incredible shot, Jo. FAV

A great capture, but he does look a bit sad indeed.

Your animal photos are amazing. Not only do you take great photos, but you capture their character. Another FAV for me.

Jo!!! Perfect pic. You completely captured the frustration and sadness of that gorilla. We have one at our city zoo who has seemed to have given up. I watch him and he looks at me for a second or two but then turns his head and stares at nothing. Makes me weepy every time so I stopped going. Your shot is perfection. It shows Everything. Awesome job.
