G. gorilla or The Western Lowland Gorilla

The Gorilla is an animal that inspires respect, whether it is the sheer size, their strength of their behaviour I am not sure but a recent trip the the Melbourne Zoo in August was no exception. The Silverback Gorilla’s had recently had a baby and as such the main viewing area was restricted but there were still points where one could see the Gorilla from afar.

I brought my Nikon D5300 camera, and my Tamron 150-600mm lense with me, and because of the great focal length I got a good view of one of the Gorilla’s, mind you it was a challenge to try and stop myself shaking due to the added weight of the huge lense. I would not like to annoy this guy in a hurry!
