Don’t even think about it

This is a photograph of a Silverback Gorilla at Twycross Zoo. He was looking rather disapprovingly at the other gorillas who shared his paddock. Apparently they have the strength of 80 men, I wouldn’t like to find out. I love this photo because of the human-like expression of the eyes.

  1. Matt – that\'s quite a stare. Just wondering – have you a zoom? I guess that as you\'re drawn to wildlife, a zoom, or at least a longer prime, would be of some value. A close up of those eyes would be very effective.
