Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
This Silverback sat anchored while baby and juvenile gorillas climbed on and around him. The young male black backs hooted and beat their chests. Suddenly, the silverback noticed he was encircled by humans and sprang from this spot to within an arm’s length of me –my eyes lowered in submission –he then disappeared into the jungle. I shook with exhilaration!
