Orangutan in the Rain, Bali, Indonesia, 2014

I was taking photos of orangutans in Bali, Indonesia, when it started to rain. Just before I put my camera away, I saw this orangutan take a taro leaf and put it on top on his head to protect himself from the rain! I immediately used my DSLR and telephoto lens to preserve this spontaneous magic moment.

Having a similarity of 97% in DNA sequence with humans, it’s no wonder an orangutan can exhibit such a behavior. Ironically, now Orangutans are facing extinction as a species because human keep destroying tropical rainforest, Orangutans’ natural habitat.
