It was a scene that perhaps wouldn't have made the final cut of King Kong.
This lowland gorilla shares a moment of quiet reflection with a tiny mallard duckling, who seems fairly nonplussed about being in the presence of one of nature's most powerful beasts.
The heart-warming image is among Nature's Best Photography Magazine's wildlife photograph winners for 2010.
A stunning image of a frolicking bear in the woods and a dramatic scene of a hummingbird facing down a deadly viper were also among the winners of the competition, which received more than 25,000 entries.
The awards began with simple yet dynamic goals: to celebrate the beauty and diversity of nature through the art of photography, and to use it as a creative tool for encouraging greater public interest in outdoor enjoyment and conservation.
The annual Windland Smith Rice International Awards programme is among the most highly-respected and visually compelling nature photography competitions in the world. The Grand Prize was won by Tom Cairns for his shot of an Osprey grabbing a fish from a lake in southern Finland.

If the story's about a photograph, it's a good idea to also post the photograph:
Here's an old one from the 80s. Koko even gave the kitty a name - 'All Ball'.
