    Hello folks.

    I haven't been around for a while. Work has been getting in the way of me having fun.

    But wifey and I managed to get to Borneo and get to see some wildlife there. We went to the Tanjung Puting National Park and trekked around some of the trails and klotok'ed up and down the Sekonyer River.

    We managed to get some decent wildlife shots, mostly semi-wild orangutans and completely wild long tail macaques and, my favourite, proboscis monkeys. I've put a few shots on Flickr here.

    I didn't use any of my serious compacts; I took my Nikon DSLR kit so I won't post any pics on here but please have a look on Flickr.

    Hope you've all been well. Hopefully, I can get back to being on here for a while too.

    Russ, welcome back. I don't think it would cause a stir if you posted a few photos. Besides, your Nikon is smaller then my Deardorff so it's a compact.
    Good seeing ya Russ.... Don

    Thanks for the welcome.

    The orangs were semi-wild in that they basically lived in the wild but were used to humans being around and lobbing them a banana or two. This youngster came into the seating next to a feeding area with its mother and decided to lay down on a bench.

    So beautiful. To me, rather ethereal and very touching. Thank you, Russ.

    A remarkably human expression, isn't it?

    Yes. I am so glad he or she is growing up in the wild.

    They are, though they generally do remind me of Jimmy Durante, at least a little bit.
