Rwanda • This picture means a lot to me. A baby gorilla came dangerously close to our group. We thought it was cute and all, but then the mother came out of the bush. She was super pissed. She made these noises that seemed so surreal, I thought I was in a documentary about people coming too close to wild silver back gorillas.
Our group leader pulled out his rifle and told us not to move. He could not fire unless she came 3 feet to us. She charged our group. Instead of freaking the fuck out, I decided to snap a pic. She came 6 feet from us and stopped, just starring us down with her deep brown eyes.
