Wat een geweldige ervaring moet dat voor je geweest zijn. En dat je ze tot vijf meter hebt kunnen benaderen, kon je nog wel ademen. Want ik neem aan dat als je daar staat je totaal geen geluid wil maken. En dan nog fotograferen dan lijkt het wel of er een trein voorbij komt lijkt mij. Het is in ieder geval een schitterend plaatje. Het heeft wel iets intiems, dat straalt het in ieder geval uit.

Hi Peter. Along with an Elephant this is one animal i would love to see in the wild. You have taken such a fine close up of this gorilla. It shows how calm it must have been with you around just laying their playing with the grass. Fine detail in the fur. well done TFS. Interesting notes too.

It has a melancholic look your Gorilla! I saw several documentaries on these exceptional creatures and they are really facsinating. Must have been unforgettable for you to meet them in the wild. I like your tight framing and the composition with the monkey surging from the corner. Well done !
Have a nice day

It is a fairly good scan from a slide, Peter.
Your trip to see these Gorillas in Africa must have been very exciting.
In this portrait, the Gorilla is unaware of your presence and seems to be as ease.
Very good portrait and thanks for sharing it.

I sometimes am really surprised/upset about people's lack of energy: 1250 members viewed your excellent image about animal behaviour, and only 18 put pen to paper to say so...
It is quite surprising, how these animals handle carefully little items - like a piece of grass in this case - with their big, clumsy looking fingers.
I have watched big baboons carefully inserting a piece of dry grass into ant termite-hole and then licking the "catch" .
Every aspect of photographic technique is perfect, and it is truly a pleasure to "watch" the gorilla.
I would also like to thank your for your kind remarks to my green beetle.

There is an idea to go Uganda for 15 days in mid August and my heart pants really much about this idea! Once again, your photo made me excited :)
I hope we will get gorillas also. With the high expenses we can only spend one day though. The permit only for the entrance is 600$ today(plus guide, ranger fees, tips etc...) but i'm not sure how much it was in 2001.
Very good one and encouraging.
