I caught this beautiful moment at Knowsley Safri Park, England.

I love the tenderness in her face and the way her baby is protected close to her.

Moments like this make life worth living :)

This shot is dedicated to my own Mother who sadly passed away at the age of 58, 29th September last year. Love you Mum.

the monkey kinda blends into the grass a little too much because the hair and grass texture is the same, but i do like the way they are posed, and her eyes are shut

the B&W conversion doesnt seem to work here. Perhaps if you dodged the monkey or burned the background would make it stand out more. It blends

The focus has grabbed on the grasses behind the monkeys head.
