[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Around mid September I found a troop of baboons at the Ngwenyeni Water hole with a whole crèche of babies. There were so many that I had difficulty choosing which one to photograph. They were so cute and very busy while there mums just wanted to take an early morning nap in the sun.
They climbed all over them but as soon as one moves away the mother would be on full alert and pull him back to her. What a joyful time I had just watching their antics.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Hello Natley,
How could you not fall in love with a shot like this!! The tiny baby has such an innocent look on it's face and those big eyes just make you melt.
Your photo reveals perfectly the dependency a baby has for it's mother. Well done Natley!!
