Monkey Mum n' Babe

in derangedphotography •  6 months ago






I met this beautiful pair of Gray Langur Monkeys in Rishikesh, during my first month in India.

They were part of a reasonably numerous group, all just hangin' out in the shade. Unlike the other monkeys I often encountered while traveling through the subcontinent – the mischievous ones who'll steal your bag if they think you're carrying food – these lovely creatures were surprisingly peaceful and mellow.

Though the whole group was photogenic, giving me a nice series of images, I was completely enamored with this baby, who seemed equally intrigued by me.

While trying to select an image for the @derangedvisions 'animals of the world' photo contest, I felt it would be sweeter to share a little vignette; a small handful of moments to give you a better sense of how they were behaving.
