A Mother's Love Photo

This photo of a tender moment in the lives of a mother gray langur and her baby is now available at the following Web sites: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/1-ann-sullivan.html and https://desertmountainphotography.smugmug.com

The picture was taken in May on a visit to India's Ranthambhore National Park. Gray langurs are Old World monkeys that are the most widespread of South Asia's langurs. They are large and fairly terrestrial, inhabiting forest, open lightly wooded habitats, and urban areas on the Indian subcontinent. Langurs are diurnal, sleeping at night in treetops or on manmade structures such as towers. Langurs are preyed upon by tigers and leopards.

All proceeds from the sale of images will be donated to the scholarship fund of Save the Elephants, which enables high-achieving but impoverished Kenyan students to attend high school.
