I was watching this young female gorilla a bit too intently.  She looked at me and rolled her eyes like any human teenager would!

Reminds me of Dorothea Lange’s “Migrant Mother:

Possibly a look many people have with the current situations!

She speaks volumes with just one look!  Just think how you would feel with a collection of photographers all staring at you in your home.  :) 

An evocative image, Diana.

An excellent portrait and an amazing pose. That look with her eyes is very special.

Very entertaining- love that look-if we only knew what "thoughts" were in her head! I guess an expressive face is all that is needed in this case. :)
