16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Draw Me Like One of Your French Girls - Gorilla Edition

This summer I volunteered with an organization that helps protect the endangered mountain gorillas in Uganda. I took this photo during one of our hikes to see the incredible animals. They are so peaceful and gentle. This was one of the females of the group, resting while the rest of her family ate some leaves.
