High in the canopy, a young male orang-utan returns to feast on a crop of figs. Tim knew he would be back. After three days of climbing up and down himself, he hid several GoPro cameras in the canopy, triggering them remotely from the forest floor when he saw the orang-utan climbing. He had long visualised this shot, looking down on the orang-utan within its forest home.
A vital story captured in one remarkable frame by Tim Laman , a wild life photographer aiming to bring the plight of such orang-utan to more people . The story is well-known but we need outstanding photography like this to bring it across to us afresh .

Sometimes known as the gardeners of the forest, Bornean orang-utans are highly intelligent. Like humans, they exhibit culture, with different groups displaying unique behaviours and traditions. Orang-utans in Borneo have been seen using leaves as napkins to wipe their chins, building sun shades above their nests and even crafting umbrellas to stay dry in the tropical downpours.
Tim is a field biologist and wildlife photojournalist with a reputation for returning from the wild with shots of nearly impossible subjects. His pioneering research in the rainforest canopy led to a PhD from Harvard University and the first of many articles for National Geographic magazine. His work has garnered numerous awards, including many in Wildlife Photographer of the Year.

Day of the Dead is central and southern Mexico during the chilly days of November 1 & 2. Even though this coincides with the Catholic holiday called All Soul’s & All Saint’s Day, the indigenous people have combined this with their own ancient beliefs of honoring their deceased loved ones.
They believe that the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31, and the spirits of all deceased children (angelitos) are allowed to reunite with their families for 24 hours. On November 2, the spirits of the adults come down to enjoy the festivities that are prepared for them.
Celebrated throughout Mexico colorful parties take place in the cemeteries and elaborate ofrenda altars are built in the homes to honor specific family members who have passed on, beautiful altars (ofrendas) are made in each home. They are decorated with candles, buckets of flowers (wild marigolds called cempasuchil & bright red cock’s combs) mounds of fruit, peanuts, plates of turkey mole, stacks of tortillasand big Day-of-the-Dead breads called pan de muerto.
The altar needs to have lots of food, bottles of soda, hot cocoa and water for the weary spirits. Toys and candies are left for the angelitos, and on Nov. 2, cigarettes and shots of mezcal are offered to the adult spirits. Little folk art skeletons and sugar skulls, purchased at open-air markets, provide the final touches.
