Not sure if this is the one that came up and touched me on my bare arm but it was so thrilling to see him and his twin, which is a rare event (as mother cannot walk and carry two so her sister helped her), when visiting the gorillas in Rwanda a few years ago. This has been heavily cropped so best viewed SMALL and was accidentally on slow speed!

Sorry not to have been clicking much lately as BT kindly took me off line for two weeks!

I know that BT feeling but thankfully not for two weeks (yet).

This is a beautiful study of one of our closest relatives.
Good job.
