A mother Orangutan and her baby share a special moment. It is always nice see these beautiful animals interacting with each other!

Outstanding image Jeff. I've spent a good deal of time observing the orangutan, their behavior and relationships within the family is much like ours. You have caught a very intimate moment and done it well. #1162306

G'day *JEFF*!

First my heartiest and warmest Aussie congratz on the EP and 2nd Place Awards. Most deserving indeed.

I really like how the point of view, nice tight framing and the composition give this wonderful primate portrait its emotional warmth and intimacy.
The excellent photography and processing have ensured we see all this in as clear detail as can be.
