Portrait of a Bornean orangutan (Pongo pygmaeus) female. Taken at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The zoo is accredited by the AZA (American Zoo Association).
We had nice, diffuse light in Albuquerque on this day. It was perfect for some primate portraits. This lady orang was my favorite subject at zoo.
