In Seattle zoo they shut all the bird exhibits down completely because of the bird flu. Hmph.

I set a challenge for my local photography group. 1-1-1: One location - One hour - One image. This was to get us to slow down, spend time with a subject and observe, then be selective in producing one and only one best image.

For this one in the series, we went to the local zoo, each chose an enclosure, and went to work. I chose the Orangutans because they are my favourite animals - although they are often secluded or in an area behind a really grubby glass screen. On this occasion I was extremely fortunate as they were out basking in the winter sun to get some warmth. I spent a magic hour observing a female Orangutan that had recently given birth. She was constantly with her young, cuddling and caressing it, and smelling it - much like us!

Here are a couple of shots, as always hand-held.
One can see the sense of love and protection from this mother

The mother had to climb up to the tops of the trees to get into the warm winter sun and bask. The baby was obviously good at hanging on!

Beautiful pics, but the first one is outstanding.

Thank you. For me, it captures a lot of emotion between the two.
