Christmas and Orion rest together in the equatorial forest of Mahale.
Christmas and Orion.
Christmas and Orion--two hefty male chimpanzees--hanging out in the forest. Notice the bulk of their upper bodies--powerful!
Gwekulo is a 50-something female in the troop.
Gwekulo is resting and eating in a private place. The branches "walled" her off from the rest of the group. Notice her fruit.
Gwekulo--note the gray beard and pensive eyes. Gwekulo was captured as a young chimpanzee and hauled down Lake Tanganyika. But she escaped from her cage and returned to Mahale. She has earned the wisdom in her expression.
Orion. He exudes confidence and ease.
Orion--check out the teeth. I love this photo.
Orion--a bust shot.
A family of chimpanzees walked through our camp, with this baby!
Chimpanzee baby--I love the fingers.
Two chimpanzees greet each other on a trail--with a kiss!
Intimate greeting in the forest.
