This is the most famous photo that I ever took. Won 1st place in Sony World Photography Award. Won Honorable Mention in National Geographic Photo Contest. Here's the story behind the scene: I was taking pictures of some Orangutans in Bali and then it started to rain. Just before I put my camera away, I saw this Orangutan took a taro leaf and put it on top on his head to protect himself from the rain! I immediately used my DSLR and telephoto lens to preserve this magic moment.
