Male Mandrill, South Eastern Gabon\'s Rainforest.

Back from Gabon

Published January 7th, 2014

I came back few weeks ago from Gabon where, together with other 15 wildlife photographers, I took photos of an horde of mandrills. You cannot find around a lot of photos of these animals in the wild (and now I know why). This was a tough trip but a wonderful experience, the mandrill is an amazing animal, Darwin was right: "no other member in the whole class of mammals is coloured in so extraordinary a manner as the adult male mandrills". We have also take some photos of the western lowland gorillas and of the chimpanzees. I will miss the incredible beautiful forest (here a photo made with iPhone) but definitively not the army ants and the thorns.
