16th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Interspecies Bonding

While journeying around the Yala National Park - Sri Lanka, I came across a very rare and beautiful moment: a Tufted gray langur (Semnopithecus priam) stroking a Grizzled giant squirrel (Ratufa macroura) caringly. It is ironic to see that the so called "wild" animals behave more humanely than humans ourselves.
