A young Western Lowland Gorilla learning to count. Actually he's eating but the way he was holding his hand just reminded me of a child learning to count.
Taken earlier in the year.
Many thanks for the C&C's on my last upload.
Have a great week.
Steve.

Awesome detail in this. Love the wrinkles and the highlights. Wonderful pose, really beautiful shot. The third hand I wish wasn't there but love the shot. I might have cropped above the hand.........Sandy
