Today’s Photo Of The Day is “That’s Funny” by Koustav Maity.

“That must be a very funny joke shared by the doting mother,” says Maity. “The baby sure wanted to hear more, as for baby orangutans, mom is the best friend for the first five to 10 years. Orangutans are known for the strong bonding shared by the cuddly mom and clingy baby. I shot this mom and baby orangutan photograph in a safari park. This is a very rare moment in the wild as orangutans are critically endangered due to deforestation, palm oil plantation, poaching and hunting.”

Photo of the Day is chosen from various OP galleries, including AssignmentsGalleries and the OP Contests. Assignments have weekly winners that are featured on the OP website homepage, FacebookTwitter and Instagram. To get your photos in the running, all you have to do is submit them.
