This was Bauwi

Bauwi Gorilla in Burger's Zoo 2017

Saturday 13 May another beautiful silverback died. Bauwi was the leader of the group at Burger’s Zoo.

Over the years I took a lot of pictures of him. Reason enough for an ode to Bauwi. The first and last photo in this blog have been heavily edited. The last one is a composite. The background has been added.

If there is a gorilla heaven, I hope Bauwi is there now. Free and in beautiful surroundings.

 

Simply a beautiful gorilla!
