Kumbuka, a 15-year-old western lowland gorilla, explores his new enclosure in the ZSL London Zoo, on May 2, 2013. The silverback male, who weights 407 pounds and stands seven foot tall, moved from Paignton Zoo two weeks ago.

The weed that start growing during April or May remains green during the summer.

Richard Silver’s photographs show us the world’s biggest sights like Machu Picchu in Peru or Copacabana in Brazil.
