I’m just sitting on a fence..
HFF. Stumbled across this gorgeous boy sitting on a fence in a National Park in Sabah, Borneo. I love the crazy appearance of proboscis monkeys.
Have a lovely Friday and a fantastic weekend. Stay safe and healthy too…xxxx

Awe- he looks nice, akin to a bored youth. It reminds me too of a gibbon I shot on a fence too in Malasia. Well done.

Good to see you back on here.

HFF, enjoy the weekend.

What a wonderful and touching portrait, Diana!

When I see proboscis monkeys, I inevitably remember a documentary in which a proboscis monkey child played with the nose of his mating father. The Pinocchio effect George mentions became abundantly clear. It was too funny, though not necessarily for his father. ;))

HFF, and a safe and fantastic weekend to you, too!
Take care, and stay well! ox

His posture and colouring are fantastic, Diana. They look like they could be creatures of some Northern mythology! A very nice capture of him.

Wow. This is a picture to sit and stare at for a while. Such a lovely boy. The colors, soft appearance of its beautiful hair, the wonderful are so lucky to have gotten this shot!

Loving your photography. What a talent! I sure do hope that your mood's been perked up by all of us and of course, getting yourself back into the groove. I find myself falling into ruts and when I dive back into my ipernity routine, I find myself again! :)
