Continuing on with East Africa images; this is a yellow baboon that I spotted on the side of road while driving between Queen Elizabeth National Park and Mweya Lodge near Kyambura Gorge. There were a few other baboons nearby, all foraging in the long grasses, but this one really caught my eye with the posture and turn of the head.
Another month starts tomorrow, let’s all make it a great one.
I switched it up a little this week (monotone, instead of monochrome) as I really liked the natural blue colour that this image had.
While out on a morning game drive on from Lion Sands Tinga Lodge, we came across a baboon troop that was just starting to stir in the treetops. Some youngsters had begun to play, and a few members were already on the ground. They were in a large tree at the edge of the river, so even though sunrise was only minutes away, it was still rather dark.
This mother and her infant caught my eye, nestled into the fork of the tree; just a simple moment, but one I was glad I could capture, and remember again.
When I saw teal or turquoise pop up for the colour challenge, I knew I would post this photo. It’s something I posted before, but the colours work perfectly, and who doesn’t love a baboon gazing at the ocean?
