Photo by @andywcoleman // For the first two years of a young orangutans life it is dependent on its mother for food and transportation. A baby #orangutan clings to its mother while she moves through the trees.  Even when young orangutans are too old to be carried and fed by their mother they may still remain close to her eating and resting in the same trees until they are about 10 years old.  We went to #Borneo to see orangutans and we were not disappointed.  When you get a chance to look…

As the leopard wove deep into the bush I was lucky to capture one final picture.  In partnership with @Experiencebotswana @botswana_tourism #botswana #experiencebotswana…

Each year there are more bison than Yellowstone National Park can accommodate.
