Almost Wistful


This week there is also the pets category at I Heart Faces. Since we only have a betta fish, most of my animal shots are of wild animals or from zoo trips. This week I've chosen a picture that I took at the National Zoo in Washington, DC of a Western Lowland Gorilla.

I actually just went to the National Zoo's website to see if I could identify my gorilla. She is Mandara and you can read about her and the other gorilla's at the zoo here.

this picture would have worked for the contemplative entry, too! Great portrait! And I love, love your picture for this week! That is the same shot on your header, right? It's very sweet!

About Me

My photo
I'm a SAHM that loves photography. My kids are my main models but they're on to me and have started running in the opposite direction of me and my camera. Well, all but the youngest. She's a ham. To compensate I take pictures of just about everything else from flowers and bugs, to landscapes and anything else that will sit still. And I share it all here because I might as well do something with it. :)
