14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Stealing a Kiss

Seeing the Golden Monkeys in Volcanoes National Park, Rwanda, was an amazing experience! For an hour we observed them and while at first they were leery of us, they eventually relaxed as if we weren't there and displayed their cute social behaviors right in front of us. In this moment, it appeared this monkey was stealing a very quick, secret kiss from his love.
