    You might as well say you've been trekking the jungle on foot, the pictures are perfect. The last one looks almost human.

    One of the things about gorillas is that they do look just like people in gorilla suits.
    Last time I was at the zoo I heard a very small child say surprised 'they look like people'.

    Nice portraits.
    The black and white works well. What zoo is that?
    Is it through glass or direct?

    Last time I went to London I got the finger:
