This Orangutan was actually quite happy in her surroundings as she was watching her daughter playing on the ropes….

If she wasn’t happy she wouldn’t have fallen pregnant…….

Taken at Chester Zoo, Chester, Cheshire, England, UK.

Sony A200.
Tamron 80-300mm lens @ 300mm.
Slight soft focus using Gimp 2.6 free download.

    It is so hard seeing them in captivity but we do need to preserve them too, great capture Sandi.

  • It’s a shame that it has come to this in the first place due to man’s greed….Thank you for your comments Lynne, greatly appreciated hunny! S:)x

    Beautiful portrait, Sandi. It is, indeed, a shame, but I’m pretty sure we’re their only chance for survival. And that is a one very scary thought….
