Camera Critters # 199 - Video link to Gorillas visiting a camp in Uganda

If you want to see an absolutely amazing video please go here.   It shows a very rare visit from a troop of Mountain Gorillas visiting a camp in Uganda.   I think you will find it as fun to watch and as astonishing as I did, a once in a lifetime experience for the people involved.   The facial expressions of the man they chose to sit next to just makes you smile from ear to ear.  I am trying to put myself in his place but I think there was astonishment, a little bit of terror and absolute joy all rolled into one.  How I would have loved to be in his shoes, lucky man!

I would love to visit the Mountain Gorilla in their own natural world.  Maybe in my next lifetime.  But you never know, if the opportunity ever arose I'd be on that plane faster than you could say 'Hello Baby!"

These photos were taken of Western Gorillas at the San Diego Zoo two years ago.  I am revisiting them to go with this post.  

I would also like to thank my friend Kathy for sending me the link to the video.  Thanks Kathy!
