Can I Have A Bite? by Julie Marks

Currently unavailable for purchase

This loving interaction between a baby Rhesus Monkey and his mother captures a thousand words. The bond between mother and child in this sensitive and interactive photograph reveals how closely we are related to “our next of kin” which is a wonderful book that describes the depth of childhood attachment, but also the intelligence and emotional range of these special animals. I like to take photographs of the interaction of animals, domestic and wild. The baby appears to me to have the vulnerable and tender expression of the human infant.

    Very interesting information. I think it is wonderful to observe animals trying to understand more about their behavior. A very sweet photograph Julie

    Beautiful moment you’ve captured, Julie. I certainly agree with you about the baby, both completely dependent and satisfied by the presence of mother.

    I saw a very simler scene in the Kruger park in South Africa. I called it Mother and Child… (its in my folio here somewhere) It is so moving to see that instinctive parental bond. I sometimes explain things that happen, to my daughter by saying, think of us as primitive beasts – you can see behaviour in the playground as little more than assertion of dominance or something like that… Great shot though Julie!
