Melancholy

Melancholy

I call this image, "Melancholy" due to the sense of introspection this male orangutan. Orangutan means 'man of the forest' in the Malay language. Gentle giants....he stands in such a way to elicit deep contemplation or even melancholy.
I sometimes wonder if animals in Zoos may understand 'something is missing' amidst their environment, no matter how good the Zoo is.
