ROUND ROBIN PHOTO CHALLENGE: The Animal Inside

My inner animal would have to be the silver back gorilla.  But not just any old silver back gorilla.... THIS silver back gorilla!  I met her at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo where I happily took advantage of the photo opportunity she availed me as she sat there nibbling on some grass.  Unfortunately she did not take kindly to paparazzi and indicated her displeasure to the invasion of her privacy in no uncertain terms.  I had to laugh and take one more shot, but I could totally relate to her attitude.  Ah yes, the freedom of expression!  She is soooooo ME!

Dorn~I knew you would be in this family! You chose my very favorites-Mountian Gorillas. I read all about the work Dian Fossey did with them. If you have not read it: "Women in the Mists" is one of my favorites books of all-time!http://journals.aol.com/sassydee50/! ;-) Sassy
