Nathanbs,

That's a great picture!  Good Citrus bonsai are so far and few between.  Do you know what kind of orange it is?  By the size of the fruit I suspect a tangello or something like that, certainly not a Navel orange.  How tall is the tree?  Maybe it's just that it's hard to tell scale in a photo.

Probably a calamondin orange, or another type of dwarf orange:
