Happy Mother's Day # 2

I'll continue with the mothering story in today post as I like the affection shown by the mother monkey, and this applies to all the mothers.

What I want to show today is a working mother monkey. In the modern mankind, we have the so called nursery whereby our kids are well taken care while we are in the office. For this simple monkey kingdom, the baby was being carried around to everywhere the mother would go. And this bring my memory back to the old times during which I could see woman farmers worked in the rice field with their baby at the back.

The little baby looked so cute in the picture staring at something that attracted his attention.


The second picture shown the mother moved down from the top of the pillar to the fence, out of her instinctive behaviour, holding the baby with one of her forearms.


The mother moved so swiftly on top of the fence, the baby just simply held firmly to his mum, showing the greatest trust that he was, and would be, always safe with his mum.

This shows that no matter what kind of animal it is, mothers always know what to do.

Ratty:: Mother is the greatest and they are able to react whatever the situation is.

betchai:: That's the reason why I have two posts on this. I was fascinated by the mom monkey and the peacefulness they have shown.

Heather Dugan (Footsteps):: It is the fundamental bond that get us coming home after long day of journey.

Where did you get an upclose shot of the monkey? Is this a long tailed macque species?

Everyday is Mother's Day! :)

roentarre:: Hopefully my pictures are able to speak thousands words.

Mei Teng:: Your comment really put me on test. I can say they are long tailed macque after a few check around.

I found them at Cerok Tokun, somewhere nearby Bukit Mertajam in Penang State.

Wanna know why I asked? I just returned from Sandakan and I got to see them in the wild..so when I saw your photos..I thought hey, it looked familiar with that long tail. It must be a long tailed macque!

Thanks for sharing them. I like watching wildlife and photographing them (if possible).
