A Very Close Encounter

Species: Mountain gorilla | Location: Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, Uganda

This beautiful female mountain gorilla chose to sit next to me in the jungle on a volcano in Uganda! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience. It took nine hours of hiking before we came across them!

I love photographing wildlife and have traveled the world doing so for the past 40 years! It is the best reason to ravel as far as I am concerned!
