ABC Wednesday "G" is for Gorilla

My posting for ABC Wednesday G, is Gorilla. I got these shots at the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans. I loved the facial expression of each shot. I think they studied me more than I did them. We plan to go back to New Orleans in October. We were so thankful for Hurricane Gustav sparing our favorite vacation city.


Happy ABC Wednesday, if you want to join us, or view the participants click here.

I think we got better photos that day than any other time. Love these photo's of the gorillas, Honey. Perfect for ABC Wednesday. (and you're welcome for reminding you that you had them and they would make a perfect posting for today!)

Great Gorilla Shots. I'm glad Gustav wasn't as devastating as predicted, too!

Kim from Hiraeth said...

Great gorillas!

The last one reminds me of 'see no evil, HEAR no evil, speak no evil.'

So glad Gustav didn't behave like Katrina!

Liz said...

Oh dear, what did you say to upset the last one and make him cover his ears?!

Wonderful shots and great expressions. I love gorillas.

Kim said...

Very good gorilla pictures. Great Job. I am also very happy Gustav wasn't another Katrina.

When I see photos like these I always wonder what the animals could be thinking. Nice photos.

I only got one Grumpy Alien posted for "G." He is at Thunder Maker

They look rather fearsome to me! I wouldn't want to get in their play area with them!

Beware of gorillas! Last year a Dutch woman was attacked by a gorilla, who escaped from a cage which was thought to be impossible to get out. It happened in Rotterdam. These photos are superb!
