[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space
Bonding between a mother and child be of any species is the most enduring of such attachments. Here this bonding is evident in the early morning suckling session.

This is the Tarai gray langur (Semnopithecus hector) an Old World monkey, was formerly considered a subspecies of the northern plains gray langur. The species is listed as Near Threatened, as there are probably not many more than 10,000 mature individuals, and it is experiencing a continuing decline.

Tarai gray langurs are native to Bhutan, northern India and Nepal, where they inhabit the Himalayan foothills from Rajaji National Park to southwestern Bhutan. They live in the moist deciduous forest of the Siwaliks, to oak forest in higher altitudes ranging from 150 to 1,600 m (490 to 5,200 ft) in elevation

Tarai gray langurs are arboreal, mainly terrestrial, diurnal, folivorous, and occur in multi-male multi-female groups.
