A Family Of Mountain Gorillas Accept A Photographer In A Black Shirt As One Of Their Own

While visiting the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda, wildlife photographer JJ King encountered the same beautiful Rushegura family of mountain gorillas whom he had observed the night before.

The group included several females, several babies and a huge silverback male, who were walking down the path towards him.

The gorillas stopped when they saw their visitor again, surrounded him on all sides and thoroughly investigated.

King was wearing a black shirt, and combined with his gray hair, perhaps the group believed that he was another silverback who presented no threat.

The ultimately accepted him as one of their own and went on their merry way.
