Caption   On the banks of Florida's Silver Springs River, downstream from the famous Silver Springs, a Rhesus Macaque (Macaca mulatta) grooms an infant. A small population of the monkeys has long lived on the banks of the Silver and Ocklawaha rivers. Their presence is controversial, and there are periodic proposals to remove the animals.
