Peering up at its parent, eyes wide and adoring, this baby orangutan looks about as happy and contented as can be. The photo, taken by Michael Milfeit, is one of the winning entries of the CEWE Photo Awards, which bring together the best snaps by amateurs and professionals alike.
The general theme this year was ‘Our World is Beautiful’, and these images were all entered into the animal category. From clumsy squirrels to a slumbering fox, all the winning shots are worth a look, but here are a few of our favourites.
