Destruction of habitat and illegal trade may well be the reason why the only place where we can photograph these animals in the near furure is in the zoo as I did. I you can, help them.

A great Natural History shot. Spot on exposure and colour. As a pictorial photograph I find for me the lower "chin"? part competes and without it the chimp has a greatly improved direct gaze. A bit of photoshop brightening of the eyes also helps this effect.

I realy think that the eye contact of the Oragotan has made it all. Dont omit the beautiful lighting and the well composed shot. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful shot with us.
