[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"I have no idea my dear"
that's what this Baboon is probably thinking. Although antropomorphism or personification (attribution of human characteristics) is dangerous because almost always misleading when observing animals, this is probably not true for our closest relatives and I am almost sure that we can guess quite correctly the mood of this baboon.

Hello Tom,

Très beau plan rapproché de ce babouin. Le fond disparaît presque complètement et renforce le style "portrait en studio"..
Techniquement irréprochable, c'est une très belle image.

Bonjour Tom,
Touchant ce portrait de babouin. Il pense effectivement et je suis de plus en plus sûre que les animaux pensent aussi..presque humaine cette attitude.
Bravo pour cette excellente image.

Hello Tom

I am sure you do have an idea how beautiful this portrait is.. Precise focus and depth concentrates every bit of attention on those lovely brown eyes deep in thought. Superbly done.

Hello, you captured a special look in his face, perhaps one of contemplation. Excellent color quality and good close up view.
