This moutain gorilla babe is riding on its mothers back. This was taken in Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. There are 350 mountain gorillas in the park, and only 700 in the world.

    Great photograph! The detail is so clear and vivid. You can almost feel their fur (hair?).

This is such a good photograph and a winner in my mind. Love the colors, lighting framing. What a sad story that they are so endangered.
