Unconcerned with Eve's Fate

 

Taken on 18 February, 2017 at 6:20 pm in Kruger National Park, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera with an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens
 
ISO 250, f/2.8, 1/500 sec., 400mm handheld Manual shooting mode in a safari vehicle during in early evening tree shadows
 
**********************************************************************************************************************************************************
 
~ Baboons crossed the road in warm early evening temperatures at the close of the first sunny day after several days of heavy rain associated with a cyclone passing over from Mozambique.
 
Next to the safari vehicle this baboon entertained with a careful approach to eating fruit. It tried several surprisingly dainty bites before finally taking a major chunk.

@Tom Kellie

I was worried you may not go on safari again - but glad to see you fitting in a trip. Lovely photos!

@Ben mosquito  Wow, missed that completely. that really looks like the same pack I saw in the same place in 2008 - or at least a branch of that pack. I hope there is more on this coming? Would love to hear how Tsavo West is faring in the drought - and to hear more about the dogs of course!
