Oh my goodness! What a precarious position. Great capture of this brave Baboon transporting its baby along the wall and excellent entry for the contest. Very good lighting and focus. Great composition. Good luck in the contest. Suzanne

    Thank you. Really appreciate your support - I was lucky to catch them -s lightly blurred as they photo bombed a shot of the view.

Hi Jomo thanks for sharing this amazing photo of the baboon and her baby precariously walking along the top of the wall. Now that is what you call Trust by the privileged young baby baboon.. I love the angle used to capture the scene.. it shows off the little baby's face perfectly.. he almost appears to be smiling at your camera lens.. how very cool is that.. got to love that cute little face peering out from below the mother's chest.. so innocent of the surrounding dangers of falling.. The mother appears to have her concentration pinned on her journey across the wall.. and seems completely unaware of your presence.. she has a look of intent to carry her baby safely .. the monkey' species always fascinates me. and your well balanced, perfectly exposed capture has truly stolen my heart.. Thanks for sharing such a fantastic glimpse of nature's well developed Baboon family.. I feel the emotion of admiration coming from the mother and the bond-ship she shares with her young baby is evident .. it has been a treat and a joy to review your photo.. cheers mel

This is something I don't see everyday, and a great capture of it. Beautiful shot of this baby holding on to its mother and a fantastic entry for the contest. This is sure to grab some attention because of its uniqueness and well presentation. Best of luck in the contest.

A beautiful picture of this mother Baboon with her infant clinging tightly to the skin & hair on her breast as she walks along the top of the wall above the Black River Gorge below you. Beautiful stop action composition framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.

Comment from GaliaG


nice show of the baby, but the photo is too blur and the colors do not look nature

also, the fact that the mother hand and legs are cut off is a distraction

thanks for sharing

    Yes he photo bombed a shot of the landscape in the distance it was not really planned. Thank you. Really appreciate your support.
Comment from Nancy Montana


The photo is such a close up as to make the baboon look as if it is a painting not a photo. The focus is such that you can almost count all the hairs on the animals body. It is an exceptional photo.

Wow! I hope that baby is strong enough to hold on while she walks ! This is an interesting image, with the mother and her young baby moving across the wall, well photographed with good stop of the action, clear and shows good detail also tells a story of how this mom transports her baby and baby holds on tight as mom walks. Well presented, best to you in the contest!

So cute! Focus a bit off to me, but the subject matter is just adorable and fun. Lighting is okay. Very fitting title for this photograph. Thank you for sharing!

    Yes the focus is not perfect I was taking a photo of the view when the mum ran across in front of me. Lucky accident.
