 The kiss
What appears to be a very tender moment between mother and infant chimpanzee. We were able to spend 3 separate hours watching the chimpanzees interact, from distances as close as about 10 feet. It was a real privilege to view the social interactions between the animals - caring for each other and playing together.This image was 'rescued' after serious underexposure, but it was worth the work!
