Danum Valley - Borneo - Graham Bailey Photography

09 May 2015 - Orangutan

Mission accomplished! The Orangutan is probably the most iconic species of Borne so one of my main targets here was to see one in the wild, rather than just at one of the sanctuaries. I heard a noise in the trees and caught a glimpse of some orange but that was it at first, Then this mother and baby came across a branch further down the path and sat eating in the treetop for a while. As is normal in the rainforest it was hard to get a clear view through but I managed a few decent shots before they moved on out of view.
