A photographer captured a heartbreaking moment of a mother monkey crying after her child collapsed. The photograph highlights the emotions and love in the animal kingdom.

Avinash Lodhi, 31, from Jabalphur, India, came across a monkey who was “wailing” as she clutched her child. Lodhi captured the “grief-stricken” mom’s intense emotions in the photograph.

When asked to explain how he came to snap such a photo, he replied, “When I was returning I suddenly saw a group of monkeys rushing here and there. I decided to sit down and watch their activities. I wanted to capture some pictures of them, even though I was losing light, but I managed to capture this. It was so quick I didn’t even know what was happening when I took the picture.”

Fortunately, the mother’s stress did not last long as her baby regained consciousness shortly after the shot was taken. As quick as the events unfolded, the image of the mother’s anguish for the child, in its purest form, is forever imprinted in our hearts. This goes to prove that animals are as capable of emotions as humans are.

“This picture is very close to my heart because throughout my entire photography career I have never seen anything like this,” Lodhi said, according to the media reports. “This moment is rare, especially with animals,” he added.

Thirty-five people – including a one-month-old baby – in Portugal have died and dozens have been injured, most of them firefighters, during fires raging in central and northern areas of the country. 

Portugal’s civil protection service said as of Monday morning, firefighters were fighting 145 separate blazes across the country, dozens of which are considered to still be serious.

In the northwestern Spanish region of Galicia, authorities said that four people had died, two of them trapped in a car, as a result of blazes that were threatening inhabited areas prompting the evacuation of thousands.

Authorities in both countries said that the strong winds from Hurricane Ophelia in the Atlantic Ocean and high temperatures fanned the fires. 

Investigations were also focusing on human and criminal causes, with political leaders accusing ‘terrorist arsonists’ of starting the blazes.
