An unbreakable bond While I was on my way to the Chilapata forest (in west bengal, India), I saw a family of Rhesus Macaques on the side of the road. Some of them were mothers carrying their child very protectively. One of these mothers were sitting at a nearby concrete wall...The way the mother's hand wrapped around her baby seemed very interesting, portraying a moment of love and affection. I went as close as possible and took this shot.

The Rhesus macaque , also called the Rhesus monkey, is one of the best-known species of Old World monkeys. It is listed as Least Concern in the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and its tolerance of a broad range of habitats. Native to South, Central and Southeast Asia, troops of ''Macaca mulatta'' inhabit a great variety of habitats from grasslands to arid and forested areas, but also close to human settlements.
