Okay, Loot, you have done it this time. : )
I just adore this picture.
This is a look that I recognize all too well... the downcast eyes and bowed head reflecting the sadness at being momentarily deprived of the love and approval that he so craves; one hand in the mouth and the other scratching his head, denoting innocent bewilderment at the vociferous and incomprehensible reprimand, the crossing of the feet that is indicative of utter sheepishness...
You have managed to capture all these feelings in this one shot... with technical perfection... and soulful artistry.
In fact, you did it so well that you have erased the boundary between baboons and humans. The emotions you so skillfully portrayed have transcended the animal realm, and we at TN are all wrapped up with this little fella's psychological well-being.
That is the highest tribute to a photographer. : )
Congratulations, my friend. : )
