Emma and Baby by lomoboy Emma and Baby by lomoboy
I went to see my favourite Orangutan today.. Emma.. :)

and she came over to see me as she usually does and she has had a baby!! It was so lovely that she wanted to show it off :)

the keepers didn't even know she was pregnant.. and I haven't visited for a while because of work.. so it was the first I knew of it.. I don't think the baby has a name yet.

She wasn't staying long though as there were people beginning to flood in so she went and hid behind a bush for some peace and quiet..

I did what I could to share it with everyone.. I never use a flash because she is so close and I wouldn't do that to her..

Hope you like :)

These two are adorable, I watched them for over an hour when I last went <3

I think this is a great shot, flash would have ruined it anyway because of the reflection from the glass, I dunno I try to avoid flash with animals anyway :)

Yes they live at the zoo.. it was through glass.. and yeah she is lovely I would never rush to get a shot you know.. prefer to be close and respectful enjoying the experience rather than just trying to get photos.. I was just lucky enough to have time to set up slowly :)

i had a really cool experience this weekend with a female gorilla. i totally fell in love with her. she came right up to the glass and posed for me and was making tons of eye contact. i was so happy.

I don't think you needed flash for this one anyway, the natural lighting is very effective.

lomoboy Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2008  Professional Photographer
cheers mate.. yeah the flash wants to work because of the indoor and glass scenario.. but I think a steady hand and a sudden burst of sunlight worked out well :)
