This is an attractive and colourful portrait of the Mandrill.
The framing is good with space for the subject to look into and eyes on the upper third. Nice catchlight in the eyes that gives life.
Just a little soft and it looks like the slightest bit of camera shake is the cause. It is ever so slight but the cropping in has made it more obvious. My guess is that at the 300mm end of your zoom (470mm full frame equivalent) and a shutter speed of 1/200s there has been a little movement as the shutter was pressed. Some selective sharpening of the eyes may improve this as it is so slight - avoid sharpening the whole image further as the animal fur will likely become over sharpened with so many fine edges.
Not always possible to cart a tripod around on days out like this particularly if the family in tow as they soon get tired of all the "faffing" around lol but alternatives such as a monopod or beanbag to rest against a wall can help when using the long end of a zoom.
A nice shot all the same.
