Portrait of Mrithi 3864 by mgroberts Portrait of Mrithi 3864 by mgroberts
Got a chance to go behind the scenes and get up close to some western lowlands gorillas. It was pretty cool being just a couple feet away from this big Silver-back named Mrithi. He is the leader of the Western Lowland Gorillas the Pittsburgh Zoo.

Location: Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium
Camera: Nikon D300s
Lens: Nikon AF-S VR 70-200mm f/2.8G

Thanks. He is definitely one of my favorites to visit at the zoo even though he is one of the few that doesn't acknowledge my presence whatsoever :D
