Hi Michelle. Thanks for taking the time to comment. Animals show affection for family members as we do.

A tender moment captured just beautifully, Kelvin. You were at the right place at exactly the right time to capture the interaction between Momma and child. (I've seen so many animals demonstrate such loving care and affection to their offspring and it always brings a lump to my exception with your wonderful capture.) #11491954
