Vervet Monkey Gambia

By Coast
An infant Vervet Monkey photographed on a recent trip to The Gambia. These monkeys are wild and live in packs of up to 80. Although cautious they are relatively happy with human contact. This infant was tempted by some fruit I had left and came within a couple of metres of me. Allowing me a few moments to capture this portrait.
This is my first attempt at photographing animals in their natural habitat and I would appreciate any comments/opinion.

Vervets are one of my favorites...You have done a superb job in this capture. Although these vervets are quite sweet looking and inquisitive, here in SA, they can be quite aggressive! We usually don't feed them as they become "agressive" nuisances!
