Mother And Son
Whenever I get to watch monkeys I'm torn: on the one hand I want to take the camera and photograph as much as I can. On the other hand, I'm always struck by their resemblance to us humans. All animals have character, but monkeys have human characters. You can see it in their behaviour, their mannerisms- even their facial expressions! I can't be sure, but in my mind these are a mother and son. Seconds before this picture was taken, she whispered something in his ear, maybe teaching him how to catch food or reminding him to take a sweater before he goes out to play with his buddies.
