John Dyer Painting. Orangutan Sunset, Borneo


"My special access to the Orangutan Foundation Lamandau wildlife reserve in Borneo provided a very privileged view of orangutans in their natural habitat. Each day an adult mother would cross the river looking for fruits in the forest and watching her wading across with her arms in the air was delightful. As the sunset each evening she would wade back into the rainforest to sleep."
