Youn Gorilla Interrupted While Drinking

This young gorilla was leaning down to drink from a stream with his/her hands, when some action to the side caught his/her eye mid-drink. The thoughtful expression on his/her face was so striking, and something about his/her hand-like feet really humanizes this beautiful animal.
