    Your Gorilla shots were better than mine, if thats not an excuse to go back I don't know what is ;-)

    And that Robin was very kind to pose for us

    Aren't Robins the cutest of birds?
    I know this thread is meant to be about the gorillas but I can't help it ... (sorry!) ... I like the photo of the robin best :oops:
    This may be because I simply like this little bird so much, or because I like the background? :greenpbl:

    I really like the robin photo too...it seems the sharpest and has the nice fuzzy background. Also, English robins are very different than North American robins in appearance. Both LP and I remarked that it was a shot for Fangman, who often captures pictures of robins at his backyard birdfeeders.

    your as bad as me, I went last Wednesday to Cotswold WP and on Tuesday I went to Whipsnade and if the weather holds I'll be out again Sunday, British Wildlife Centre, and Tuesday, not sure where yet but I know I'm missing The Hawk Conservancy

    Where is Fangman?

    Those gorilla's are huge buggers, arent they. They look very cool though :)
    And indeed, the robin shot is pretty good :)

    I know one of his sons was visiting from Scotland last week...so perhaps he's just busy.
