There is a real 'depth' to the look he is giving you. Very nice photo.

Yes he was very expressive. It was the first time I saw a real gorilla.
Thank you very much.

Lirait on un brin de complicité entre vous lors de ce shooting photo intimiste? Tu lui as offert le thé j'espère. J'aime beaucoup cette photo, on dirait un humain avec une forte pilosité.

Je sais pas, peut-être ? Je sais qu'il vaut mieux éviter de fixer un dos argenté dans les yeux, il prendrait ça comme un défi. Mais il ne semblait pas énervé par mon appareil et les bruits du déclencheur. Il était couché sur le dos contre un tronc dans l'enclos intérieur et s'est montré très patient bien qu'apparemment il ait mauvais caractère ^^ Je n'aime pas beaucoup les singes en général mais j'aime beaucoup les gorilles.. Ils ont une présence que n'ont pas les autres..

This is fantastic. The composition is perfect, and you've really captured that life in his eyes. It's not the 'standard' shot too which is really nice

Great work!

Pas vraiment, il est né en captivité, il ne connaît pas la "liberté". L'enclos est grand, il dirige un groupe de 3 et les femelles les rejoindront. Les enclos sont bien pensés au zoo d'Amnéville, c'est pour ça que j'aime ce zoo.
