Photo Of The Day By David Connel

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Gibbon Bond” by David Connel. Location: Tanjung Putting National Park, Kalimantan, Indonesia.

“My wife and I traveled to Borneo to photograph the orangutans and gibbons in the Tanjung Putting National Park, Kalimantan, Indonesia,” says Connel. “The gibbons were particularly fun to observe and photograph as they traveled through the trees. We encountered a few mothers with their babies. After watching their interactions, I was highly motivated to capture this emotional bond between mother and baby. This turned out to be extremely difficult since they never stopped moving. After three days in the jungle, I managed to capture this image when they paused right in front of me.”

1/90 sec., f/6.3, ISO 320, 18mm.
