There is a big Banyan tree about 30kms from my home. It is the second largest banyan tree in Asia. This place is a haven for monkeys. We go here quite often to enjoy the place and i miss no opportunity to study their behaviour and take lot of images. In this image i don't know what is really happening, but i feel it is sheer parental care.

What a sweet capture! You are keen about relationships. I loved your comment on my photo of the writer and his girlfriend. You are right about them, they seem to have a great relationship.
Lovely shot!

Marian is right, your comment on Lunch 11 (Hyenas) about Dad not being included, means that relationships are important to you. This image of yours is really enchanting, the expressions are priceless and you have captured them so well.
