Thanks for your comment. Perhaps the image didn't translate well with the current Animal Challenge. For me, the photo represents an evolutionary transition for the Orangutan. He's not simply an "animal." He is displaying an action of "consciousness"
and awareness by peering into his hand... in very human way. I wasn't looking for a better moment, as I thought that this one was priceless.

BTW, as an exhibition piece, I've sold at least a handful (no pun intended) of these prints. Nonetheless, I am always appreciative of comments as well as how other people see their photographic work. Best regards and thanks again.
