“Face to Face in a River in Borneo.”
While looking for wild orangutans in Tanjung Puting National Park, Indonesia, we witnessed the amazing sight of this huge male crossing a river, despite the fact there were crocodiles in the river.
Rapid growth of palm oil farming has depleted their habitat, and when pushed to the edge, these intelligent creatures have learned to adapt to the changing landscape,
This is proof, considering orangutans hate water and never venture into rivers.
I got five feet deep into the river to get this perspective.

The Batu caves are on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The main temple of Murugan is a Hindu shrine that sits in the centre of the caves, 100m and a steep 272-step journey above ground.
In the caves, monkeys and backpackers jostle for position and birds fly overhead.
