Mother and a child

This picture was taken in a cultural park, where monkeys are permanent residents. Although these animals seem to be cute, this is not the case with the wild ones. Precautions should be taken as they tend to steal from people and even get aggressive when feeling threatened. In my opinion, this shot represents the mother's love perfectly. While the kid monkey plays carefree with itself, its mom watches the people passing by to detect a potential threat and save its child.
