Portrait: Mountain gorilla tracker, Rwanda

This guy was one of number of gorilla trackers I met, I photographed him just as we were starting our descent and the morning rains had started, bringing with them the mist. About two or three of these guys will stay with the gorilla groups all day, waiting patiently at a distance until they bed down for the night. That way the following day when the next team come up the mountain they have a good idea where the groups will be, allowing them to send legions of tourists up the mountain in the most efficient manner.
