Gelada Threat Display Sequence

By SteveMackay  
Here's a shot to go with my previous Gelada Baboon image, I created this composite of four images, to show the build up to the fourth/far right image.
The "bleeding heart" is easily covered up by the hairy chest (especially when they walk) and that's what is happening in the middle two shots.
Once again, I was a long way away from this guy and was not antagonising him in any way, he was also doing this threat display to his females and anything else that moved, I stayed for about 2 hours to get this sequence of shots with him actually looking at my camera.
Thanks for looking and thanks for comments and votes on my last pic, it's much appreciated!! Smile

Amazing. So worth the wait to get the shots to create this image. Those teeth look very dangerous and he is really menacing looking.

Hi Steve,
I liked your previous image of this , but the sequence lifts it to something really quite special.
