"The Hug"

I spotted a troop of vervet monkeys (Chlorocebus pygerythrus) moving through Mountain Zebra National Park in South Africa. This mother hugged her baby close. I was taken with their eyes, both so intense. The image was the Photo of the Day at kodak.com on January 16, 2008, and the Animals Photo of the Month at Bestfoto.
