Rough and Tumble
Category: Spontaneous Moments
Photo and caption by Ying Xiao
We trekked up Mount Bisoke to spend time with these wonderful furry creatures whom inhabit the area known as the Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. I snapped this photo while watching a pair of 5 and 6-year-old gorillas playing as one was tumbling through the bushes and took the other one down with him. Every time I look at this photo I’m reminded just how human-like they are and it’s hard not to laugh at the extraordinary facial expression of the gorilla on the left.
