The Great Ape knows his stuff and seems to be acting as a poster child for his species.

Captured at Twycross Zoo by photographer Linda McPherson, the little ape stared directly into her camera.

Linda, a freelance photographer, has been taking pictures for the past 29 years.

The 39-year-old said: “He looks like he’s just been to the gym and he’s posing up.

“Wildlife photography is my passion, photography is in my blood – I find it very relaxing.

“It is a wonderful feeling to spend time with animals and be able to photograph them and their special moments.

“I have been a photographer for 29 years since I was 10 years old.

“I got my first camera when I was 10 years old; I started to photograph swans and ducks.

“I felt happy and honoured when I took this photograph of Shufai, because he was looking at me and my camera, I spend x1 day a week and sit for hours with the Gorilla’s ad I feel they have got to know me.”
