    Love the photos – I really like the one little gorilla sitting off by himself eating whatever it is he’s eating (almost like a kid with his hand in the cookie jar).

    These photographs are amazing – especially the first two. There is so much love being shown amongst the gorillas.


  5. Donna Janke says:

    Wonderful photos. You’ve captured some precious expressions on the gorilla’s faces.


  6. Great photos. I am fascinated with gorillas. They seem so docile, but at a moments notice their natural strength and verbosity can erupt. Thanks for sharing this with us.


  7. I could stare at gorillas all day wondering what they are thinking. Thanks for sharing the images.

    I lived in NYC for years and never made my way to the Bronx Zoo. Love the pictures of the little gorilla family. I always remember that story of the little boy who fell in the gorilla pit at the zoo and one of the gorillas held him and protected him (at least I think it was gorillas – definitely some type of ape.) Anyway, that made for a great story.


  9. Great photos of the gorillas. Honestly had no idea they have a zoo in the Bronx:-).

    Great the photos Ken! I love zoos and when I worked in travel I was fortunate enough to be able to treat myself to visits to many of the larger zoos and natural habits. The National Zoo is one of my favorites and there is a wildlife sanctuary in Australia that is simply amazing. I am getting itchy feet, time for a trip! 🙂

    Oh how fun! You just made my day with these pictures, especially the babies!

    Such a delight to look at Ken! The first two in this family of gorillas are my favorites.

    I feel a general kinship with animals and love going to the zoo. My favorite zoo animals are the more exotic ones (e.g., big cats, bears, reptiles) but I can see why people are drawn to apes and monkeys due to their human-like qualities. In looking at your gorilla photos I wonder, “Are we really that much more ‘evolved’ than they are?” Maybe they don’t read Shakespeare or listen to Beethoven but they haven’t started any world wars either the last time I checked. (OK, I am being rhetorical here but you get my point.)
