Gorilla babies

I took my friend to see the tiger cubs the other day. She arrived quite late and I was pretty shattered, so in the end I left her to it. But not before I caught the two baby gorillas on camera. The younger one - the little boy - was having what may have been his first climb, watched over by his half-sister.

Eventually Mjukuu, the mother of the 18-month-old girl, unhooked the 8-month-old boy (not her son, but her daughter's kidnapped half-brother) and took him to safety. Meawhile, her little girl had to look on, which I found moving in a rather sad way.

The Salton Sea

Not a good look. Not my kind of film.
