This photo (of an extremely rare mountain gorilla!!!) was taken on October 25, 2008 in Bwindi Imprenetrable National Park in Uganda. And yes, we were that close. (For the photo geeks out there, this was zoomed into 90mm on a 1.6x crop factor sensor, so it is the equivalent of about 150mm of zoom.) I recently promised to feature more animals on the weekly travel photo, and this is probably as good as it gets!
