Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top


I had to think a little about this one but I finally came back to this photo from Rwanda.  The first and most obvious reason is that this baby gorilla was “all over” his parents and siblings while we were there.  This photo was taken as he was trying to take a ride on his brother.  The second reason for on top is that the photo was taken “on top” of a volcanic mountain where these mountain gorillas live.  One thing I probably haven’t mentioned before is that these limited mountain areas are the ONLY places you can see mountain gorillas – they do not survive in captivity so they are never found in zoos.  All of the zoo gorillas are lowland gorillas.  We really enjoyed this little fella’s antics as he tried to get “on top” – hope you enjoy this capture of the little guy that now lives in the top of all of our hearts.
