Photo: This photograph was taken at Yavapai Point on the Grand Canyon Southern Rim during the sunrise. While I was photographing the sunrise, a man with a black robe climbed down to this narrow rock cliff, did some exercises and started to meditate. It was a breathtaking view that I wanted to capture, with the vastness of the Canyon’s landscape, the warmth of the sunrise, and the focus of this man doing his meditation.

Photo: Monifa is a western lowland gorilla that gave up her son, Hasani, to the surrogate mom named Bawang. It was nice to see him bond and play with is biological mother. I do wonder if Monifa really knows that it was her son, since they all live in the same exhibit, but Bawang will always be the dominate female gorilla. Photo and caption by May Woon
