I like to take pictures of monkeys because they show a lot of personality. Many gestures and expressions are the same as the humans. The picture above is one of them. The Orangutan mom and her baby is having a moment, bonding time with each other. It looks so effortless and peaceful. This picture is taken indoors and through a thick window, still the Canon 70D and Tamron 150-600mm lens manage to capture the moment. This picture is taken handheld.
Orangutan male is looking different from the female. It is often bigger and the face looks different as well. This picture above was taken from about 20 meters away. With the Tamron zoom lens you will be able to come pretty close and you will get more natural pictures since you do not have to disturb the animal when you stand further away. This picture is taken handheld.
