Say Cheese!

posted on 17th of october, 2008

For several years now I have enjoyed taking photographs of different animals and I am always amazed when I photograph an animal and it looks like they are smiling. The Gorilla smiling in the picture normally never has this expression on his face but I was at the zoo one day and I called out his name and when he turned around to look over at me he looked like he was smiling. I was quite pleased with the outcome of this picture. I have photographed several animals with what it looks like a smile on their face but the gorilla photograph will always be my favorite.

Here are some more animal pictures that it looks like they are smiling:

When ever I capture a smile on an animals face it always brings a smile to my face too :)
