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!

I recently saw orangutans in Malaysia. They are beautiful creatures! Great photo!
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!
Oh! He looks so nice especially when you told that he politely stuck out a hand and requested a bunch of bananas from the feeders. I really want to see that.:)
