f/5.0 1/200 ISO 400 180mm (using Canon 70-300 IS).

Taken at Melbourne Zoo, Australia, in the brilliant Western Lowland Gorilla enclosure. This is Motaba - the resident silverback and father of the three youngsters. I waited a good 30 mins for him to turn around for a split second, as he generally turns his back to the crowd and typical of most primates, he does not like eye contact.
