It is an image I envy. At 170mm you must have been pretty close to him. Great image.

Indeed I was, Kim. We're supposed to keep a distance of 7 metres but no one told the gorillas! I wasn't going to ask this fella to back off when he came over. I did gingerly move back however, after a few clicks.
Regards,

Des

What a character and he doesn't look too impressed - almost a look of resigned disdain! Great facial expression, Des.
