I just couldn’t resist taking a photo of this chimpanzee family. I just love the way the baby is so relaxed sleeping in the loving arms of a familiy member.

Hi, I’m a mum of 2 wonderful young children who occasionally let me indulge in another of my passions, photography. I enjoy being creative.

I love how photography makes you look at the world in a totally different light. I seem to find beautiful things everywhere that other people will walk by without a second glance.

Please check out my portfolio and comments are always appreciated.

    Great capture! I had so much trouble getting these guys to sit still for me in a spot I could get them.
