Monkey Business.

When I first saw this young lady out of the corner of my eye, I thought she had some terrible skin disease or an awful deformity! It was only whenI pulled up next to her and the rest of the family, did I see the reason for her strange look. Holding on tightly, is her baby.

It's quite amazing how these little ones will detach themselves while mom is feeding. Then as soon as a dangerous human in a car stops close by, it's as though someone switched on the magnet. In one quick movement, baby is re-attached to mom.

Interesting shot and story. The only place I've seen a baby monkey clinging to it's mother like this, was at the zoo.

Yes, very interesting. It's too cold here for monkeys to be running around!
