Haha, great shot. Totally stoned Gelada captured in great way :-) Perfectly detailed shot with interesting composition. Moment is excellent.
I love this picture!! A marvelous close-up of the resting Gelada. The expression on his face is priceless. The heavy lidded eyes are wonderful. Excellent details of the face, wrinkles and hair. His nice natural colors against the green is superb. Have a great time skiing in Austria. Enjoy yourself and have a safe trip.
Now that is a capture i have enjoyed very much looking at after i saw the thumbnail and opened the page.I think this is one of he mos impressive shot i have seen of an animal of this species,especially because of the PoV you have used.
The timing was perfect as you clicked to capture those sleep pair of eyes.The tight framing showing the slight bit of grass in the left BG and the FG contrasting with fantastic amount of details on your suject makes the composition both intimate and endearing.
I am delighted to add this outstanding composition to my "unforgettable theme".
TFS & Cheers
p.s:have fun on skii

What an original and touching shot! In a way it looks so human. Good idea to show only the head of the Baboon.
Excellent framing and sharpness.
Have a nice day

Ph Peter, what a lovely photo of the Gelada baboon. I feel quite sad to see it laying down like this. He seems sad and deep in thought
It's an excellent capture

a very expressive animal portrait, perfectly approached and framed. Deep natural colours, impressingly wealthy details. Feeling attracted to that image at once, maybe feeling just the same ...
Just read that you spent your holidays in Austria - in hospital instead of skiing. So sorry for you. Hope you were treated well, and are back on your feet in good order again.
With thanks, and best regards,
