We went to Barrydale, some 50km away over a mountain pass for brunch yesterday when we came upon a huge congress of baboons all over the road. Most ran and hid when we slowed down for a photo but we did manage to get a few good shots in Smile
V2 - more baboons on the retaining wall in the Tradouws pass.

V1 is tops. Even although detail is gone in their eyes, you caught their fur most beautifully. Great opportune captures, Herman. In the right place at the right time! SmileSmile
