21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A male Orangutan looking at you

I traveled to Borneo to photograph Orangutans. Within the first 10 minutes of my jungle trek I came across this male Orangutan who proceeded to model for me for 20 minutes. It was a spectacular 20 minutes even according to my guide who had seen everything in his long tenure as a park guide.
