Lonely Eyes

I always wonder what’s going through the mind of a gorilla in captivity. I don’t like the fact that they are locked up, but there I was taking photos of them. Her eyes looked so sad and lonely.

San Diego Zoo Safari Park

There is a section of the park where the lions can lounge on the top of old Land Rovers. I took a position on the bridge, and shot across the enclosure to catch a majestic shot of one of the lions
