orphan orangutang

Photo and caption by liam humphreys

while traveling inside an orangutang sanctuary in west borneo. My group was lucky enough to encounter a young orangutang sitting about 3m from the path on a small cliff ledge. I quickly pulled out my camera, and took the photo. I didn't have enough time to change the settings from my last shot so i just had to quickly switch the iso to around 800 and take the shot. I was lucky that the picture was good because straight after i took it the orangutang rushed of into the underbrush. It was a lucky and memorable experience.

Location: Sepilok Orangutang Sanctuary, Subah, Borneo
