I’m the king of the swingers……

Here are 3 swinging images from Borneo. Firstly, everybody’s favourite, I hope, the orang-utan or orang utan. This is a shot taken at Sepilok, a rehab centre for orang-utan.

The second is the only shot I obtained of a truly wild orang. It was shot from a canoe at great distance on a misty morning. Not quite Gorillas in the Mist but close.

And finally on the swingers theme, my favourite….. a wild proboscis monkey, complete in bomber jacket. Eat your heart out Jimmy Durante.

But because I know you like the heffalumps, here is a final one. Do you come here often?

I’ll have another trawl through the Borneo archive later and see what gems remain hidden.

  1. Andrew, you are comical. That is some serious monkeying around with your camera. Excellent- all of them. The orang in that very tall tree is like a mystical being (in the midst of the mist)

  2. Loved the photos and envious about the elephants as I didn’t see them on my trip to Kinabatangan – we missed them by an hour sadly

    • Marie, I am sorry to tell you that we saw them twice for extended views in the 5 days and once briefly. I understand that is extremely unusual.

I'd be delighted to hear what you think
