A lovely portrait of this youngster. The reaching-hand adds interest. Very nice image!

So full of character! A sweet view of this youngster - he looks completely bewildered!

Quite the pose! Love the bright eyes. Can't figure out the arms and legs- maybe he can't either" ;). Love the hairdo too.

What a sweet portrait of this youngster. I love its expressive look, color and fluffy fur.

Must be pretty special to see a non-human primate in its natural habitat...so very cool right there! Your settings suggest it must have been very dark, challenging conditions?! The saturation seems a bit high, but I don't know much about the colors of orangutans. I had the same confusion as Cynthia regarding those "extra" limbs, but I guess his hind legs are just very flexible.
