18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mother's Love

I was at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Florida and was watching the Orangutans. I noticed a mother and her baby and decided to try and capture a photo of them together. She was so careful with her baby and was so tender. The bond between them was touching and you could tell how close they are. I pulled out my camera and caught her looking at me in the lens at the exact moment I captured the photograph I looked at the photo I had just taken and I could see the love she has for her baby.
