Orang close up

By Adderwatcher
Good day all,
Another shot of the Orangutan today, this time a close up to show his face. Like Gorilla (and to a lesser extent chimps and bonobo) the face and expression is much like our own. Though i love orangs for their nature and that wonderful coat its always been their eyes that hold my attention.

Thanks for the clicks and comments on my last upload, hope you like this one!

A very sad expression, Scott, I guess there's not much to smile about at present, apart from the Royal Wedding, of course Smile Carol
