Wow! what a magnificent stance you've captured of this rare Silverback. The lighting turned out well considering the cloudy day. Nicely composed with the Gorilla being the POV. Well done.

What a lucky person you are. I visited a group in Bwindi. I know how very impressive the visit to this gorillas is. I only saw a part of the silverback, hiding between the bushes.
You made a wonderful photo. He's looking at you! Amazing shot.

What a very nice experience for you to see the gorillas. It is very special because you can see that he has eye contact with you. And you can also see the power of the gorilla. Great job. Nice POV and BG.

Regardless of your tribulations, what an experience. to be with a gorilla in the wild, I wish.
