Why there is no baboons pictures? It is unfair!

 

Here is mine:

It's easy to spend hours watching the interactions between baboon - we absolutely love them - especially the little ones!

 

Here's a few of our favourite shots taken in Kruger NP over the years

I'm no great fan of baboons. But I have to admit they can be fascinating to watch when they are relaxed and interacting as a family group.

Shades of Brown


Photographed at 9:41 am on 11 February, 2014 in Amboseli National Park, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.


ISO 800, 1/2000 sec., f/5.6, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


*****************************************************************************************************


One of the qualities which I admire about baboons is the blend of different shades of brown in their fur. An oil painter would call on their finest skills to faithfully render it.


Watching this baboon fastidiously sort through grass, I was impressed by the subtle nuances of color, which imbue it with a beauty beyond expectation.

Picasso's Muse?
Photographed at 9:42 am on 11 February, 2014 in Amboseli National Park, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.
ISO 800, 1/1600 sec., f/5.6, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.
*****************************************************************************************************
The lines and contour's of this female baboon's face are reminiscent of work from the late middle period of Pablo Picasso's career.
The vigorous health and intelligent gaze please me. I like seeing the life force in full flower, whether in my loved ones or in animals such as this lady baboon.

Open Wide



Photographed at 1:37 pm on 21 January, 2013 in Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 300mm f/4L IS telephoto lens + EF 1.4x extender.



ISO 100, 1/160 sec., f/5.6, 420mm focal length, handheld Manual Exposure.



*****************************************************************************************************



The primates I've observed on safari have been a source of happiness. My late mother was fond of the great apes and monkeys, which may have influenced my feelings.



What this baboon was doing was beyond my ken. I liked the comical quality of its expression and pose, as I sometimes look just like this!

No Diving



Photographed at 3:14 pm on 2 May, 2015 at the Mara Sopa Lodge, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and a Zeiss Makro-Planar T* 100mm f/2 ZE lens.


ISO 250, 1/800 sec., f/8, 100mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.


*****************************************************************************************************


After checking into the Mara Sopa Lodge for my second visit, there was a couple of hours before the evening game drive began. I walked around the landscaped grounds, camera in hand.


A trio of baboons was playing near the swimming pool. They repeatedly sampled the water by using their cupped hands. As the sign requested, none of the baboons ever dived.

UNUSUAL OLIVE BABOON. Papio anubis

Whilst on a game drive in Tarangire N.P. in July 2015 we came across a large troop of Olive Baboons, nothing unusual. However as we studied their antics it became very clear that one individual was very different to the rest, it's hair was very light grey in colour and had some very pale skin patches, a leucistic specimen. (Partial loss of pigmentation of hair and skin). In July 2016 we returned to the same troop but it was not present on that occasion.

Image 1. Normal Olive Baboon.

Image 2. Leucistic example. (Both images are were taken within the same troop,seconds apart).
