I took these photos at the Henry Doorley Zoo in Omaha, NE.  Silver Back Gorillas, it is a great zoo.

Sad though that he has to live in a zoo ... Hope he's happier than that face suggests.

Sue, they seemed very happy, they have a very large enclosure, both inside and outside. In perfect world he would be free, but this is not a perfect world, now is it? Far from it, actually. Since they are being killed in the wild, I am glad to see that there are some in captivity in good clean healthy zoos for the our young people to see and by seeing, wanting to protect them, both in captivity and in the wild.

The other day, you asked where I got my profile pic... I'm so sorry it's taken so long to answer - I meant to the other day & forgot! LoL!
I can't remember where I got it, but I can email it to you if you'd like?! I just love how spring-y it looks with all the colors!
I'm sooo IMPATIENTLY waiting for spring

I'm presuming you had a zoom lens. That closeup is absolutely fantastic.

Oskar said...

Wow, those look so much like peoples!

Iowa Gardening Woman said...

Kathy, I had a 200 mm zoon lens, but it was cropping that makes it seem so close, photo software is a wonderful thing.

We were there last summer, it is a wonderful zoo. Great pics!

Karine said...

Both your flower photo and your gorilla photos are amazing! And yes, our ladies do know how to celebrate ;o)

I've been to the Henry Doorley. It's a wonderful zoo. I grew up around there and as a kid, i dreamed of working there when i grew up. I wish i had followed my dream.
