Baboon domestic

By BrianSS
Taken in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. At the time I noticed this fight I only had my standard lens fitted because I had been photographing other Baboons close up, and by the time I had fitted my telephoto lens the fight would have been all over. So it's a heavy crop and not as sharp as I would like but I like the impact it has. A split second after I took this shot the baboon with his back to the camera took off like a bat out of hell!

That does look like a fight and a half. Excellent timing.
