14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Contemplative chimpanzee

I was living in Uganda and my family came to visit - we did a chimpanzee habituation trek in Kibale National Park in Western Uganda, tracking chimpanzees for several hours. This chimpanzee's posture struck me as remarkably human-like, a stark reminder of our species' tied history (and genetics!).
