13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Maternal World

The photo was taken at Gumbalimba Park. We were told that there was a mother that had a baby three days ago and to not go near her. As soon as we got there, she jumped on my friend's shoulder and the baby was adhered to her back. We were stunned and so happy to get to see this and photograph it.
