Just back from a wonderful 16 days in Uganda, with one highlight was getting to spend time with Mountain Gorillas again.

This is "Nsekuye" a 2 yr old male infant, granting me this wonderful over the shoulder pose, he's one of 8 that form the Nyakagezi family, which boasts 3 Silverbacks.

Such captivating creatures with their wonderfully poignant expressions, Marc. You have indeed allowed us to glimpse a momentary view into the soul of this infant, as I feel he must have when his eyes met yours. A beautifully sensitive portrait.
