Your Shot photographer Carmer Huter made this portrait of a mountain gorilla in October 2017. “Despite it only lasting a split-second, this eye-to-eye moment with an alpha male gorilla in Uganda is a memory I shall cherish for the rest of my life,” Carmen writes. Mountain gorillas, a subspecies of the Eastern gorillas, are considered critically endangered due to war, human disease, habitat loss and poaching. Photograph by Carmen Huter
