[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A touching scene with Natasha, a volunteer from UK helping an orphaned orang utan which is less than a year old to learn how to climb and hang onto trees. At a facility designed to rehabilitate animals which have lost their habitat or been found in a sickly way. The work these people do is amazing.

Just reversed to bring the small head into the left side.

Hi Murray,
Really a moving photo. Very well displayed, lots of emotion in this. Nice colors and details. My congratulations to the volunteer as well. TFS Julie

Bonjour Murray

Photo très touchante effectivement!!!
La tête de ce bébé orang-outan est incroyable!

This one is better in terms of shutter speed - less wshed out with better range and deeper tones. You did an excellent job once again, given your shutter was only half what would be usually required to get a clean shot at 200mm.

Interesting use of the horizontal flip ... it's reversed the writing on the girl's top!


Hey, Murray, what a cool shot!
There are so many interesting elements. The colors, the lines, hardness of the tree and softness of the animal. I like the vee the trunk makes that is echoed by the position of her arm and the way she's looking down. Just a truly pleasing and heartwarming shot. Many thanks and hope you are well!
