The gorilla's hand

I'm always amazed at how human-like the apes are. I saw this guy's hand, knuckles, etc complete with thumb, thumbnail and hoped to capture my wonder with this photo where I've placed my focus on his hand...


This photo was taken in extremely low-light conditions (at least for the Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 that I was using). I wrote up a blog post about how some creative (and somewhat extreme) measures I took to get this shot -look at the EXIF for just how extreme it was given all that I had was a monopod...
