A grumpy gorilla has been caught frowning for the camera by a UK photographer.

Sarah Vaughton, 38, from Swansea, Wales, was visiting Virunga National Park, Democratic Republic of Congo, when she spotted the gorilla.

The photo shows the gorilla – who appears to be frowning – as he looks at a small green leaf on his bottom lip.

Sarah said: “I visited the Humba Gorilla family in Virunga National Park.

“This was the silverback of the group. We stayed for an hour with the family and just observed their behaviour.

“It always takes my breath away to see them in the wild and this visit was as magical as the one before.

“The images were taken on Christmas Day 2017 but I’m sharing them for the first time now.”
