KALIMANTAN, BORNEO - UNDATED: A female Borneo Orangutan with her baby with leaves over their heads to shelter themselves from the rain in Camp Leakey, Tanjung Puting National Park, Kalimantan, Borneo.
As everyone knows getting caught in a summer shower can be leave you a little under prepared, with newspapers and briefcases often used to cover heads
And life in the jungle is no different for this inventive orangutan mother and her child in the rainforest of Tanjung Puting National Park on the Indonesian Island of Borneo.
Gathering foliage from the ground at the first sign of rain, the adult orangutan made an impromptu rain hat that coupled as an umbrella for her little one. Adding extra protection from the heavy tropical rain the concerned mother tucked her unimpressed youngster as far under her arm as she could to shield her from the shower.
