Yes, you are right, the expression on the faces of the little Baboons make the picture. And they are so interesting. The younger baboon just focussed on the bigger one and the later looking at the photographer. Vey well seen and vivid scene. The light conditions didn't seem to have been the best, but here the content is more important. Good framing chosen by you too.
Thanks and kind regards
Have a nice Sunday

Peter, this is an amazingly natural shot of these two young Baboons with almost human expressions on their faces.
Despite fog, you have captured a very clear and sharp image of this lovable creatures.
Well done and TFS.

Your study is very interesting, and I add your photo to my Theme Animal Behaviour
In some literature they call it "Social Climbing" i.e. in order to gain any social status, Baboons have to devote time to grooming...
Your excellent focus and and control of depth of field offer many details - and I am surprised at the bad front teeth of the "Groomer".
The foggy background is actually a plus emphasising the Baboons activity.
Thanks for sharing your trip,

A superb capture of two juvenile gelada baboons behaving like children!
The POV is great to show the expresion of the one facing the camera with fine sharpness and lighting. Even the deciduous teeth can be seen (before I became teacher I was a dentist for 20 years) with fine clarity.
Thanks and have a good week,

Wonderful shot of the two Gelada Baboons. That face is priceless - the eyes and teeth are amazing. It's so nice to see animals relating to one another. You must have had quite an experience with 100 Geladas.

One word to describe this and that is WONDERFUL. The expression captured on the little one's face is incredible and speaks a thousand words. It reminds me of the joy and innocent and playful interaction between children not having any cares in the world. The enjoyment captured on the face of the baboon facing you directly is contagious and really a stress reliever to look at. It just seems so happy and naive. I can only but imagine what satisfaction you experienced to see a sight like this in person, as it is a more than a feast to me, sitting 1000’s of kilometres away. Like always it was a pleasure stopping by your gallery. Thanks for sharing. Your valuable input to everybody on the site is always appreciated.

Yes, I agree with you when you say: Nice to see the expression on the faces.
You got a very nice expression at the right time MF, and as you told us, you used PS, but very well used.
TFS and see you on TN. Thanks for your identification and nice words on my post too.
PS: Today I started write critiques/comments since the last time I was here on TN and my Green faces suddenly finished. Anyway I`d like to say that I realy liked your post. Have a nice week dear friend.
