Silverback. Humba Family. Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo🇨🇩🦍........ It’s so rare to get a Silverback to acknowledge your presence on a gorilla trek, let alone look directly into the camera lens. They command ultimate respect, especially when you’re about 1.5 meters away like I was when I made this photograph.
Today is Swedish Cinnamon Bun Day, but it is also World Animal Day. And this is Mr Cash as a fluffy baby❤️❤️❤️❤️ just look at him. I love him so much. Not just because he's cute- but because he is family. Let's eat cinnamon buns and enjoy them☕️, but let's also Respect animals of all(!) kinds. Yes, even the little ones (bugs etc. Work on this one, yes ladies?👊) as well as the big ones (whales etc). Humans are not the only and smartest beings alive and with more education, knowledge and awareness- maybe we can all learn to treat animals right..... Ps. hashtags below are for world animal rights organizations and more. Do what you can and most of all; make sure you do something. Love eachother and the ground and water we share❤️#wecantdoitallbutwecanalldosomething #bekind#wwf#teamvirunga#friendsnotfood#padi#animalaid#lovethegroundyouwalkon#lovetheearthweshare#cinnamonbunday#kanelbullensdag#worldanimalday#october4th
