The green boat, nicely reflected in the Sekonyer River, was our photo platform for photographing the wild oranutangs and proboscis monkeys in Tanjung Putting National Park during my recent trip to the Kalimantan Province of Borneo. In this image the boat was tied up to the dock of the Rimba Orangutan Ecolodge, where we stayed each night. The boat design is a semi-pinisi design, common to all the river boats in the park. The image also shows how dense the jungle is along the river, with its thick verge of almost impenetrable palmetto grass, so you only can see/photograph the monkeys and apes that come to the trees right along the river's edge, or come to the three feeding stations along the river.
