The Resting Orangutan

I captured this image at a zoo that has held very emotional memories for my family and myself. I saw this Orangutan peacefully relaxed in his exhibit. He posed for me the entire time I was watching him through the lens and it brought me so much joy. He is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so thankful for this opportunity.
