Photo Challenge: Black

This photo was taken while with Group 13 at the Virunga National Park in Rwanda.

The young gorilla kissing the guide’s head later played with my hair.

His mother is laying beside him keeping watch.

If you wish to know of my time with them


The Gorillas of Virunga National Park.

  1. What an excellent posting my wickedly fine friend
    it sort of remind me of that film with Sigourney Weaver
    and Gorillas in the Mist 🙂

    Have a brilliant rest of day and
    a lovely start to your Wednesday 🙂

    1. There was mist on the way there – took hours of walking to find them – but when we got there the sun was out, they were patient, and it was a perfect moment.
