Tuesday Postcard – Week 4 – Mowgli the Orang-utan

This week’s postcard comes from Bukit Lawang in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Taken this time last week, at the Orangutan feeding platform in the Gunung Leuser National Park, Mowgli took a while to decide he was hungry, but when he did eventually show up, he politely stuck out a hand and requested a bunch of banana from the feeders, before retreating to a tree and devouring the feast.

He was simply beautiful, as you can see: even with a mouthful of bananas!

    1. Thanks, they are indeed beautiful. Such expression and emotion in their faces. We all wondered what they thought of us, staring up at them with cameras!
