Second picture from my close encounter with this group of monkeys on the way to Makasutu. Today is a day of cleaning, and the work is done very carefully .... eheeh ..
Makasutu is a tropical 1000-acre reserve encompassing five different eco-systems, including gallery forest, savannah, mangroves, palm forest and wetland. Wildlife is plentiful with many bird species, monitor lizards, baboons, vervet and red colobus monkeys, and the occasional crocodile and even the odd mongoose can be spotted on the riverbanks...

Seconda foto dal mio incontro ravvicinato con questo gruppo di scimmie sulla strada per Makasutu. Oggi è giorno di pulizie,ed il lavoro viene fatto molto accuratamente....eheeh..
Makasutu è una riserva tropicale di 1000 acri che comprende cinque diversi ecosistemi, tra cui foresta, savana, mangrovie, foresta di palme e zone umide. La fauna selvatica è abbondante con molte specie di uccelli, varani, babbuini, cercopitechi e colobi,occasionalmente il coccodrillo e anche la mangusta possono essere individuati sulle sponde del fiume ...

Hello Luciano,
Interesting photo of a typical monkey activity. Fantastic sharpness, details and splendid natural colours. Good choice of composition.

Hello Luciano,

Hope you are well brother. Please accept New Year's greetings once more. Look man, you should not have posted this photo, with me scratching your back. I had not asked you to tell everyone that sometimes I do help you....smile....I was joking. This is a wonderful shot of these baboons. You are a master!
Yes, you are right about the Sony DSC HX300, it is not a good camera but I do not have the money bro and you do not lend me your old SLR or DSLR camera.....so it cannot be helped but with a mega zoom, it is better than my previous Sony camera.
Thanks a lot for sharing a wonderful photo, take care.

warm regards / Abid

Ciao Luciano, deliziosa scenetta, bella spulciata, ottima nitidezza, bravisimo, ciao Silvio

Hi Luciano, A lovely family caring image. Picking bugs from each other in monkey society is a behaviour of a social grooming which enhances the bonding between them and thus they can live in a more harmony atmosphere. I like your capture which remains me the importance of family values in our human society. Nice use of light and natural colours always. Thanks
