|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Adult female and juvenile gelada (Theropithecus gelada) rest together during the rainy season in Ethiopia's Highlands. Temperatures fluctuate quickly at this altititude, almost 3,500m, and can be especially dangerous when combined with rain. |
As an aside, this gelada is easily distinguished from the rest of her band by the dome shaped growth on her left snout. This is likely caused by a parasite.

I quite like the closeness shown here and you have captured a nice moment of this expression between them. Unlike the Orang Utan of Borneo that I have posted earlier, this specie has more hair and different feature of the head.
The Orang Utan are more on the trees hanging up and down, swing and hop around, there are not on the ground except for feeding. I am not sure about this gelada specie.
Very good work.
