Pan Huifen feeds monkeys at Longhu Mountain nature reserve in Long'an County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Sept. 27, 2017. Pan Huifen, a 61-year-old local in Long'an, currently works as a tour guide in Longhu Mountain nature reserve. Though her home is far from the scenic spot, she used to visit this area frequently since 1983 as her husband worked in the forestry protection station there. Since then she got hooked on monkeys in Longhu Mountain and was even called as "monkey mother" by people around her. Pan became an employee of Longhu Mountain nature reserve in 1992, and she often volunteered to explain habits and characteristics of monkeys to visitors. Now Pan is one of the most popular tour guides in Longhu Mountain. (Xinhua/Lu Boan)
