A Mothers Kiss

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Michael Palmer

Me and my girlfriend shot this photo of an orangutan mother kissing its baby at a nature reserve whilst traveling through Malyasia. We could only just about see the pair through the clearing in the jungle, but at full x24 zoom we managed to capture this very special moment.

Location: Semenggoh Nature Reserve, Kuching, Malaysia
