This was quite early in the morning in a remote part of southern Borneo. This gorgeous lady heard our approach and came to see what's going on. I had my 300mm/f2.8 on me at the time so it was perfect for an intimate portrait and capturing the morning glow.

A very striking intimate portrait with fine detail and beautiful light illuminating her flaming hair, Des! If only they could speak - although her eyes speak volumes.

Great light and the facial expression is very interesting, too.

Stunning image. The expression, pose and light all come together to make an outstanding photo.

Gorgeous light on this Des. You have the knack of producing interesting facial expressions with your primates. This no exception. Like it!

Great looking portrait of this Orangutan. His expression and eye contact is terrific as is the the early morning light that gives him the overall glow.
