OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
This shows one of the young twins in the Suza Group which I was lucky to see on one of my trips to see wild gorillas in Rwanda. The hour there was the most brilliant time of my life as the gorillas were truelly wonderful: gentle, playful and awe-inspiring.

PS. One of the twins came and touched me gently on the bare arm, and then later a "teenager" about 3.6ft rushed up, whacked me on the knee and ran off - absolutely fantastic!

What a privilege for them to let you get so close, and to witness their family interaction. And, a terrific photo to boot.

Oh wow what an amazing capture. The mother looks exhausted. I regret not seeing the gorillas when I visited Rwanda. I believe it is life changing to witness them in their natural habitat. Great social skills, and often the young left in the care of the grand parents while parents go foraging for food. Well doneGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
