Odd times we are living in regardless of which side of the aisle you find yourself.

He looks very much at ease, Eric and you captured that seemingly old timer very well!

Incredible intimacy. At 28mm, your feet must have been touching

If only the other gorillas you mention could be so chill. He looks like he has more sense than to grab the ... uh... you know... er... cats! he meant to say cats! Like the ones you mostly photograph....

Lovely image Eric. Many emotions and moods conveyed in this image. Peace? Intimacy? Melancholy? You were there so I leave it to you to explain to us. B&W is very effective. Would you mind posting the colour image as well? Uganda?

At 28 mm this could have been a selfie! Very well done for one of you two ~ Ron

Thanks everyone! This silverback plopped himself down no more than 15 feet from us and watched his lady and child foraging slightly down and to his left. He obviously didn't get the stay
23' apart rule...It was one of the most incredible experiences I have had in the wild.

I cannot stop looking at this. An incredible image. He seems to look right into one's soul. He knows something. And he allowed you to show us. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Eric. Can't decide which I like better - colour or B&W. Fabulous image! Thanks for posting both.

Great shot Eric. Can't pick between the B&W or color. There's something about looking at one of mankind's closest relative.
