[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
An infant gelada monkey (Theropithecus gelada), nor more than a few months old, resting in between two adult females for warmth, however, the chill in the air wasn't enough to quell his curiosity.

Geladas are endemic to Ethiopia, and are found only in the highlands where they feed on a rather unique diet of herbs and grass. They can form large herds, sometimes approaching 1,000 individuals and spend their nights perched on cliffs which overhang the Great Rift Valley.
