[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
If the "humanity" of one animal can candidly break your heart from tears to laughter I would have to say the most genuine human being is an Orang-Outang (a Malay name meaning "Forest People").
I really hope this animal will not perish and never be seen again in the wild in the future generation.
Conservation efforts are not extensive enough with all the WWF, Indonesian government and media publicity.
I wish I was more positive about the future of the most loveable wild animal I ever seen, but when I left I cried feeling like is the last time I will see this true brother of mine, a much better brother than I am...
The quality of the image itself could be better in a perfect world, and I am no stranger nor hypocriticaly modest about that, but jungle is no perfect place, specially from very far and no tripod in circumspect light conditions.
Just enjoy and hope with me these amazing creatures will live on...

Molto bella e commovente. Ciao gigicacco

That is indeed a super capture of these endearing animlas. It is just a superb pose. To get this good a shot under the condidtions is great. I find the black and white foreground with the green BG a little distracting but it is a great photo.


Evelynn : )
