Top Shot: Under Protection | Photograph by Boris Barabáš (@borisbarabas)
#YourShotPhotographer Boris Barabáš captured this image of a young curious silvery langur embraced by his mother. “You may ask, why is he not ‘silvery?,’“ writes Barabáš. "This is due to the fact that youngsters are born as bright orange. Only later, is their fur transformed into grey/silver.” This image was selected for the August 9, 2018 Daily Dozen.
