Tender Care

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Kathy Perry

The Barbary Macaque has its natural home in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. This tender family moment was captured at the Trentham Monkey Park in the UK, where the climate is surprisingly similar to the Atlas mountains. Here a mother, and probably an aunt, provide a moment of tender love and reassurance to the young baby. It was such an intimate family moment, lasting just a few seconds, that I felt privileged to witness and capture it.

Location: Trentham Monkey Park, Staffordshire, UK
