This orangutan didn't want to get around much, so the best I could do is zoom in to where here appeared to be taking it easy and daydreaming.

Captured at the Brookfield Zoo on August 24, 2017.

In the past, the National Zoo of Malaysia used to let you pet, hug and have pictures taken with these orangutans (free of charge!). Not sure they still do this, it's been a long time since I last visited the zoo.
