[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this mother and child of Chacma Baboon in Lower Sabie Sunset Dam, Kruger National Park. It was a sunny day and I had captured this picture from Car. I couldn't go close, so from far I had to capture it. It was a nice moment in the lap of mother nature.

*The Chacma Baboon(Papio ursinus) also known as the Cape Baboon, is like all other baboons, from the old world monkey family. It's one of the largest of all monkeys.

*Appearance :- The Chacma Baboon is a large primate With a dog-like face and large, prominent canines. A mature male measures 1.5m from head to tail and weight up to 33 kg, whereas thebmore slender female measures 1.1 m and has a mass of about 15 kg.

*Diet :- Omnivorous, under natural conditions they feed on wild fruits, seeds and insects, even scorpions, and on occasion even the flesh of small mammals and birds.

Ciao Srikumar, nice family scene, wonderful natural colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Sri,
Excellent title first of all. Photographically: perfect shot. :-) Even taken from far distance, sharpness is acceptable, while composition's delightful. I love the lack of eye contact with the mature female - it really gives the feeling only the youngster saw you. Perfect usage of lights, lovely colors. Fantastic image, the only minor negative point is the background noise. But don't worry, the free demo of Neat Image can solve this problem (www.neatimage.com). A very positive apercu after all. Congratulations!
Best regards, László

Bonjour Srikumar,
Très belle et attendrissante scène de la vie sauvage magnifiquement restituée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
