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.

Dogs can do the funniest – and most unexpected things, as all owners know.

And now a selection of the best Snapchats featuring pooches have been shared in an online gallery.

Some of the perfectly-timed pictures show dogs with very amusing expressions on their faces, especially when they’ve done something naughty.

Rare White Giraffe Discovered

Posted in 2017, animals with tags , , , , on September 19, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Conservation Rangers were left stunned after the discovery of an extremely rare white giraffe and her calf.

Rumours had circulated of a white giraffe and her baby in the local area of the Ishaqbini conservation, in Garissa County, Kenya, but rangers finally got to see the real thing after a tip off in June, this year.

The group of giraffes appeared calm as the Rangers got closer and seemed undeterred by their presence. A ranger said: “While observing the magnificent long necked animal looking at us, I could not help but see the fading reticulates on their skin.

“It was evident that the colouration, especially on the mother giraffe, was not as conspicuous as the baby.”
