18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

Silverback Gorilla at the Bronx Zoo. While a 2 hour drive I visit as much as I can. I love this guy. He is a wonderful leader of his troupe. Fierce, protective, and gentle with his family. I have often seen him giving the Moms a break and playing and watching over his little ones.
