Another shot from the Copenhagen zoo.

The picture has been cut. Adjustments to curves and a little USM. Finaly a slight dodge to the eyes.

Here´s some 1nfo from Wikipedia.

Hamadryas Baboon

The Hamadryas Baboon (Papio hamadryas) is a baboon from the Old World monkey family. It is the northernmost of all the baboons; its range extends from the Red Sea in Egypt to Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia. It also lives on the Arabian peninsula, though it is uncertain if this population was introduced by humans or not. The Hamadryas Baboon was a sacred animal to the ancient Egyptians as the attendant of Thoth, and so, is also called the Sacred Baboon.

Apart from the striking size difference between the sexes (males are often twice as large as females) which is common to all baboons, this species also shows sexual dimorphism in coloration. Males are silver-white colored and have a pronounced mane, while the females are maneless and brown.

Hello Lars,
Interesting photo, I like the baboons posture and facial expression. The photo is sharp and clean,
