Silverback Gorilla

Enjoyed a photo-shooting day last week with three camera-toting friends, at Sydney's Taronga Zoo, overlooking Sydney Harbour. We'd caught the ferry across from Circular Quay, then a bus 'up the hill' to the zoo entry.

In a contemplative mood; you might wonder what he's thinking.


The zoo has this magnificent Sydney Harbour backdrop







and back down the hill, to meet the ferry back to the Quay, via one of these

Hi Carole Well this post brought back memories of the couple of times I visited the Zoo. It certainly has a wonderful situation looking over the harbour. Great shots and no 4 is my favorite. Yes you wonder what is going through his mind. Have a great weekend.

Great shots of the silverback. Gorillas are returning to the Houston zoo next year. I'm looking forward to that. Lovely views from the Taronga Zoo too. Happy Critter Day!
