MOODY GORILLA

SAT with his arms folded and a cross look on his face, this Gorilla looks like he's had enough of the Christmas holidays already. The cheerless primate is not in the mood for any photographs, giving the camera the most irritated of glances. This amusing picture was taken by Louisiana writer Debi Dalio, 55, after a visit to the Rio Grande Zoo, New Mexico.
