South India early evening.
All mothers are very protective of their babies, and so was this one. This little one was attached to his mother’s hip.
When I got close to them, the mother would pick him up and walk a few feet away. This little one had his eyes fixed on me; he could not get enough of me. Every time he ventured a few feet from his mother towards me, his mother would pull him and bring him closer to her. He was very curious about me and didn’t feel any danger. After some time had passed, she allowed him to come close to me.
I stopped photographing, as I wanted him to feel comfortable in what he was doing. If I had to use my camera the noise of the camera would scare him. For me, the energy we shared was far more important than taking photographs. I wanted to enjoy the moment, instead of risking scaring the little man
The mother felt the energy I was putting out, and so she allowed him to get close to me. Your intentions create the energy that others sense.
How climate change affects monkeys
Monkeys are primate animals. They mostly depend on leaves and also fruits for sustenance. The CLIMATE CHANGE which leads to El Nino and La Nina events are affecting these primates more because it decides the availability of this sustenance. These events lead to flooding, severe drought, and also storms. This leads to scarcity of food and also water. This, in turn, is a pathway of new diseases that would affect the monkeys.
Even the food that is available has fewer fiber leaves, meaning the monkey does not get its needed strength. Female Monkeys end up malnourished and also give birth to smaller offspring with less birth rate. These factors contribute to a decrease in population.
