Mountain Gorilla of Bwindi with Infant

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Timothy Brooks

After a very challenging climb of 4 hours we came to a clearing where about 25 gorillas were playing and feeding. This mother’s infant is just 4 weeks old. We were not charged or threatened. This group had 2 silverbacks that kept close eye on us. Photo was taken with a Nikon D3, 18.0-200 mm f/3.5-5.6 lens, 1/200 sec, f/5.6, ISO 1600. Although we were in a clearing, it was overcast and the light was low.

Location: Bwindi National Park, The Impenetrable Forest, Uganda, Africa
