From Pharyngula, I got this image of a orphaned baby gorilla holding a human hand at Lefini Faunal Reserve. It is actually from 1998. Dates aside, this photo effectively captures the emotions of “bush-meat orphans,” young gorillas whose mothers are illegally killed by poachers for meat, without showing face.

In case you wanted to put this awesome image as your desktop here’s a link for the highest resolution image, 1024×768.
