Black Face Monkey mom and baby

Touring the forest in India by a jeep, we heard sounds in the wood. A big family of black face monkey were there. I noticed the little baby was at her mom's arm. The baby was so precious and was a few months old.Her eye's were filled with curiosity. One of her hands was trying to reach out. Her mom held her tightly to protect her. Mothers always protect their baby no matter what species. Motherhood is hard but rewarding .
