MJ was described as a hybrid orangutan, Bornean-Sumatran. She was born at the Toledo Zoo in 1980. She came to the Milwaukee County Zoo in 2007. On Monday September 14th she passed away. Some of these pictures are a small tribute to her, and some include my friend Scott Engel as well, As both her and the Male ORANGUTAN Tommy enjoyed the enrichment with the iPad. I feel lucky to have known her over the last number of years, due to me being at the Zoo allot she knew me on sight and would come up to me, much like she would with Scott.
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
