Kinder Kong

By chrispd101
Shot taken a few weeks ago of a young Chacma baboon.

We were in the De Hoop Nature reserve and came across this troupe of baboons not too far from the road. They were pretty unfazed by the car and so managed to get several shots of them.

The light wasn't ideal (behind them), so tried to concentrate on closeups. This little chap had a real far-away look in his eye as he sat munching on a branch. Thought about trying to crop the other cheeky monster in the right foreground out, but prefered it with him left in.

Thanks for looking
