Another Idiot With A Camera

I remember taking this shot like it was yesterday. She just sat there looking at me with those sad eyes. I could just imagine here thinking “Great, another idiot with a camera”. She was only a few feet from me and she was looking right at me. When I view the image at 100% I can almost see myself in her eyes. This is one of my favorite gorilla shots from the safari park. The lens I used for this shot is tack sharp and a joy to use.
