One of the baby twins

By JuBarney
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!

Goodness - I thought this must have been taken at a zoo! What a wonderful shot and you must have loved the experience! Not sure I'd have had the composure to grab a shot at all!
