Casually Hanging With Gorillas

Casually Hanging With Gorillas

This wildlife photographer got a bit more than he bargained for when trying to take pictures of wild gorillas in Uganda.

Not that it was a bad thing by any means!

It may look, at first, like the photographer is cowering under the anticipation that he might be hurt by the encounter, but in fact what he is doing is displaying the correct way to behave when dealing with these creatures.



Now, He Can Smile

Now, He Can Smile

While the gorillas were in front of him, he knew that it was very important for him to keep his head down and avoid any eye contact.

Likewise, it's extremely important not to make any sudden movements. Either of these, especially in sight of the big male gorilla, could be seen as a sign of aggression and the situation could have unfolded very differently!

And Then They Are Gone!

And Then They Are Gone!

After a few short minutes where the gorillas decided that they trusted him and the young ones even started playing with his hair, they were off!

This encounter between man and wild gorilla is a special one o catch on camera, and you can see how happy this guy is with it!



Just One Thing...

Just One Thing...

Before you watch the short video of the encounter, there's just one thing to take note of...

Is it just me, or does the male gorilla fart in the guy's face as the family are making their exit...???
