Gorilla at the Zoo
©JAL, 2007, November 2007
This week's Friday Illo theme is ZOO. My last visit to a zoo was in September 2006, when I was in Seattle. So my blurry photo of a gorilla munching his lettuce served well for this illo.

Was he as bored as I've made him look? I don't know, he and his fellows seemed to run and play rather oblivious to us humans observing them. But I suspect they are most happy in sanctuaries in which they have abundant space.
