Mother Monkeys

Mary and I were back in Houston for 6 weeks, through August and into September.  About 2 weeks before we came home Tom spied a monkey that appeared to be misshapen.  At first, repelled, he looked closer and realized that a little, tiny monkey was clinging to mama with all he had, and what looked like an odd growth from her underside was the little baby's tail wrapped around mama's tail.

I caught these photos as the mothers, babies attached, were moving past a bedroom on the side of the house.  These mamas spook quite easily, so I feel fortunate to have even taken these.  So, accept my apologies for the poor quality.

Can you see all the monkeys in this photo?  The one sitting alone was acting a guardian, all the others were mamas with babies.  You'll have to look close to see all of them.
