20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mamas, They Carry Us

This photo was taken as a troop of olive baboons walked past me. Seconds before I captured the image, the baby ran up to the mother and clung on to her as she walked by, and once they made it into the bush, the baby jumped off of her and began to eat flowers and play in the trees.
