      Is this another version of the Tiger and Cub brooch you have?! This is a really sweet little brooch, mama monkey seems to be smiling back at her baby, with the baby looking very mischievous of course!

      Thanks & Mother's Day wishes to you all

      Thank you for the great praise FreshAir, appreciate the double love wishes! This monkey mom & baby is pretty timely for Mother's Day right, it's my last St John of this series & I happen to love monkeys as well

      Phil you're so right, monkeys not only get attention they seek it out, one of the most social animals! As I was born in the Year of the Monkey, as a child I was always chattering away & had a short attention span just like them, which has fortunately tamped down with age a bit. Thank you for your super insightful comment

      Lol Roy, looks as if that monkey mom is a little peeved at the baby on its back! Of course I get the double meaning, very cute & thank you for your fun comment & giving me a smile :)

      Thank you Scott for your fab comment, glad you liked this monkey pair and yes, a little Mother's Day tribute from the animal kingdom! Like all moms, animals work very hard at caring for their kids, feeding them & protecting them from danger

      Great memory Lauren, the tiger & baby brooch I posted was a similar pose with the baby peering over its back, and I've actually posted several of these mother-child animals from the St John series over the yrs including elephant, kangaroo, cheetah and giraffes. It was a great series and I think I have most of them now & I too find the poses sweet with the young'uns next to Mom and their great expressions. Fantastic comment & observ, thank you so much

      Thanks Karen for agreeing with Lauren, she does have amazing insight & always sees my animals in a new light which totally delights me - thank you also for your lovely comment
