Recuerdo perfectamente el modelo de tu nueva imagen... realmente me haba agradado mucho la primera sin su madre.
Divertida composicion por la expresion del mono... adem疽 de una excelente agudeza y presentacion.

I remember perfectly the model of your new image... really I had pleased to me much the first without his mother.
Amused composition by the expression of the monkey... in addition to an excellent sharpness and presentation.

Very good composition.
Fantastic photo congratulations.

Nice shot! You've captured a lovely pose here, focus/DOF are good, although I think you can bring out a bit more detail if you sharpen it a bit more and perhaps used a little less JPEG compression. Composition is good too, I love the way he's looking across the frame. The only thing I'm not totally keen on is the twig sticking up on the left, I find it distracts the eye a little. Well captured as usual :-D

P.S. Look forward to seeing your Kalahari shots, safe travels and enjoy :)

Hi Callie!

Very nice capture. Very nice pose and expression. Thanks for sharing! Regards!

Great shot Callie

He looks really odd, bit of a pig snout. I have never seen a baby baboon like this before and that's the great thing about this site.

The pose and expression is very compelling, the photo is very well composed and a great note too.

If you have to go don't stay away for too long.

Points tomorrow.

I agree with others - great pose and quality of this picture.

Good shot, Funny pose, great details as always.
Well done.

Aaaggg shame! Now my wife has to agree... babies are cute not beautifull. Exceptional facial expression and pose you captured, Callie. That snout does look wierd, though. Great composition.

Get us some scorpions while you are there, please... :)

Very nice and amusument shot! The baby baboon is very cute!

oooh!very cute monky!good compo and colours.apes can be so funny sometimes!
nice goodbye ill be back picture!
enjoy the trip and i hope you bring back some nice pictures!

This very different from the powerful cats, and I like the fragility feeling coming out this baby baboon it. The pose, the expression, the naked environment add to this feeling. It's a baby but already showing an adult determination. Very good title. Have a good time in the Kalahari (you lucky man). Awaiting your harvest of desert beauties.

The big eyed worried look is great as he looks back to the group.
great capture Callie, you will probabley off hunting pics by the time i post this. Hope it goes/went well and you have some great captures.

Callie, Great moment this! Also looking forward to your Kalahari shots. Take care.

Hi Callie

I love the pose, the face and those ears!! Have a great trip to the Kalahari and look forward to seeing the photos.

Keep safe!

He is certainly not taking this lying down and he is already sceming on how to get back to mommy. Superb shot and composition.

Geniet die vakansie.

What a heart wrenching photo...it makes the mother in me want to scoop this little guy up and hug him. Fabulous capture, Callie. It is one of those rare images that not only captures the subject very well, but it evokes great emotion which sets it way above the rest! My hat is off to you...

Callie, I love the expression. Pragtige werk. Ek dink ek het die outjie se pa afgeneem toe ek in die Kruger was........

Just beautiful, I still remembered perfectly your previous post. Encharming.

Oh I want to hold it, give it a hug. I donエt know much about animals, I like this page to see this kind of tender shots.
Thaks for show it.

Hallo Callie, ik zie hier nogal tijd die mooie beesten van u, wat is dit kleine aapje schattig, u spreek nogalijd de taal van de dieren, want hij luisterd naar u Callie!

Now that is one cute/ugly critter! Well composed, Callie, and a very entertaining position you've captured. The muted color pallette works well here.
