A baby proboscis monkey being secured by his/her mother at a nature reserve....a safe place to be...and a sweet time of our lives to remember...once we were our Mother's pride.

Hi Dilshan...
Beautiful shot...
Great scene...
Beautiful timing...

Bom dia Dilshan,
Good hygiene practices. A beautiful photo, clear, crisp and very well done.

Hi Dilshan,

beautiful specimens of Nasalis larvatus, mother and baby.This tight composition is good, it conveys a strong sense of intimacy.Good lighting management favouring the colours.Pity for that leaf in FG, it distracts the attention a little from the main subject, but i think it was inevitable.A note about the very human-like mother's expression, almost concerned, and about that of baby, a mix of curiosity and fear.A pretty image.



Hi Dilshan
perfect capture of this heart touching scene.
incredible softness of facial expressions on mother and baby. interesting monkey portraits.
good management of light for natural colors. perfect focus.

A picture full of emotions, sacrifice and above all, a bond of love, Dilshan!
Marvelous moment you have captured from a monkey baby enjoying its Mother's warmth.
technically, a perfect work.

Well caught!

Best regards,

Wow! Beautiful capture not just of the subjects but also of the moment, very moving. Details are so crisp and sharp. Perfect exposure and good pov. Wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.
