Cuddle in the jungle..
In other shots, the doting mum cups her child's face in her hand, a playful youngster swings from a creeper and a tot called Siswi licks a leaf as she learns nest building.
The intimate pictures were taken by British photographers Fiona Rogers and Anup Shah.
They spent three weeks following the orang-utans at Tanjung Puting National Park in Borneo, Indonesia, to record this fascinating pictorial insight into the daily routine of the animals.
Fiona said: "We felt that orangutans are very humanlike in their gestures, glances and general behaviour. They can work you out.
"They study you and try to figure out who you are and what you are thinking."
So not only are they cute, but they're clever as well...
