a daily and hours long habit with the baboons and other primates

"Most baboons live in hierarchical troops of 5 to 250 animals (50 or so is common), depending on specific circumstances, especially species and time of year. The structure within the troop varies considerably between Hamadryas Baboons and the remaining species, sometimes collectively referred to as savanna baboons. The Hamadryas Baboon has very large groups comprised of many smaller harems (one male with four or so females), to which females from elsewhere in the troop are recruited while still too young to breed. The other baboon species have a more promiscuous structure with a strict dominance hierarchy based on the female matriline. The Hamadryas Baboon group will typically include a younger male, but he will not attempt to mate with the females unless the older male is removed."..wikipedia

Hi Geof.
Very cute and typical scene for monkeys. I also like excellent DOF, exact framing and cropping so much. However, the key point of the shot is state of moof of the animal. My best wishes and TFS.
Alexei.
