Kigali the Gorilla

This is Kigali, a female member of the group of six Western Lowland Gorillas at the Smithsonian National Zoo. She is unique for the red hair on her head. Interestingly, the zoo describes her as being both peacemaker and instigator in the group. I was intrigued by her relaxed intensity in this capture. Amazing animals.

Many thanks to all who stop by, look and comment. I'll wade into your 'stream as well.
