image captionGunther de Bruyne: "This portrait of Bornean orangutans was made in the Tanjung Puting National Park in Indonesia. The national park is known for this critically endangered species. However, habitat destruction by logging and mining (most of it illegal) keeps on lowering the numbers of this magnificent great ape."

I have always been fascinated by flamingos as they are so intriguing in their behaviour. Their vibrant feathers contrast beautifully with the dark foliage behind them and cast reflections in the water."

Surprised the moth stayed still long enough for me to take this shot, I took a few others from different angles but this one shows the most detail in the best light."
