The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of December 16, 2016.
This week, share a photo that says anticipation. A candid shot of your niece, eager to blow out the candles on her birthday cake. A photo from the trip you’d long dreamed of. An image of something you hope to have one day, or something that was worth the wait.
We were standing with a small crowd visiting the great apes at the San Diego Zoo’s Safari Park. There was a mother carrying a youngster on her back and a big handsome silverback munching on bamboo shoots. And then I noticed, far over on the right, one gorilla doing something very different.
He was standing erect, looking up into the treetop and waving a stick in the air — trying to knock a few pieces of fruit out of the tree for a snack.
After a few minutes, another gorilla joined the first, watching attentively. If any goodies happened to fall, he wasn’t going to miss it!
