Orangutan Mother and Baby, Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia
It’s been awhile since I posted an orangutan, so here’s a double shot of two of them — a mother and her baby from Tanjung Puting National Park in Indonesia. Both photos were shot wide angle at 17mm (I just backed up a bit for the first) so you can see how comfortable they were with my presence.
Nikon D700 with Nikkor 17-35mm lens (at 17mm) ISO 800, f/4.5 at 1/250th of a second

    Amazing that the mother would let you get so close to her baby as it just hangs on to tree,really showed the colors of them
