Thoughtful Gorilla
Photographer: Elaine Turner
Location: Bwindi National Park, Uganda
The highlight of our trip to Uganda was a visit with the mountain gorillas in their native forest, a dream of mine for decades. When we first saw them through the forest, I started crying and couldn't even take pictures! When I recovered, I took many, many pictures, including this one of a gorilla scratching his chin about my presence.
