Hanging On - Portrait of an Old Man




Hanging On - Portrait of an Old Man
Old man of the forest, "Orangutan," is highly endangered due to severe loss of habitat. The rainforests where it is endemic are being clear-felled for palm oil plantations. This old orangutan was hanging around in this dilennia tree, eating the flowers and snoozing, while it rained incessantly. I watched him for a while and made a few images of all his antics, but felt this one captured him in his environment the best.
