|This one reminds me an old man with white beard who is thinking about the good old days :)|
The Guereza Colobus(Colobus guereza), also known simply as the guereza, the eastern black-and-white colobus, or the Abyssinian black-and-white colobus, is a black-and-white colobus, a type of Old World monkey.
They were quiet shy up in the mountains but the families in Rift valley were rather tame. Here in the gardens of United African hotel, i had many good experiences with them :)
One funny think about them: Unlike other monkeys, colobus monkeys do not have thumbs. :)

Yes it looks like an old man thinking about second marriage ;)...just kidding. Great shot with a perfect exposure and excellent details. Great contrast with the background. Catch-light in its pensive eye is very attractive. Thanks for sharing this fine shot,
