For differing reasons, I feel this is one of your finest Des. Lots and lots of thoughts and emotions come to mind. Excellent!
Make your life spectacular!

I agree with Dave! Wonderful composition and content - the perfect image to showcase their plight and the destruction of their habitat, Des. A very poignant and evocative scene and one I could look at for a long time. Outstanding shot!

This is truly wonderful- so beautiful in this setting-both the tree and the orangutan are so enchanting -a real story-teller. If only he/she could speak....

This is absolutely amazing. The rich colors, patterns and textures throughout, and that incredible pose just make this unique and memorable.

Beautifully composed and processed, the eye contact is superb. My understanding was that orang-utans almost never go onto the ground, so seeing so low is quite a treat.

Great moment and I really like the inclusion of the habitat in this one, Des!
