Homage, Not Mockery

I love orangutans. Really I do. They are my favorite of the great apes. Am I wrong to feature them so often? It's more of in homage than in mockery. They're just too much to pass by - especially the males.

This particular one is called Punkin. I hope that means something tough and manly (apely?) in some other tongue, because I would be upset to be called Punkin if I were an orangutan. In fact, I might start rending people's arms off, just because I could.

Thanks for the phots, Kim.
