I Love the Zoo

I do love weddings, don't get me wrong,  but my favorite part about the wedding this weekend wasn't the prettiness or the food or the music.  It was this guy:
The reception for the wedding was at Como Park Conservatory which is "attached" to Como zoo.  So, in between the ceremony and reception, we were able to wonder around the zoo.  I love the zoo!!! Especially Como.  RARELY do I see the gorillas, let alone this close.  They are usually sleeping in a nook when I am there.  This was spectacular.  

Let me give you more perspective.
Look at that!  He's flippin' huge!!  He started out like that (facing away from us).  Then, soon decided he'd like to see us more, so he turned around and just hung out.  Mike and I (or I guess, Mike indulged me as I) stared for a good 15 minutes.  

I know there are people out there that hate zoos, that have issues with animals in captivity, but where else can this happen?!

Amazing.
