    What would Kruger Park be without its entertainers?

    Here's a glimpse of a little Baboon doing what young Baboons do best: acrobatic tricks. Or rather, arboreal tricks. Chachma Baboons are great fun and we spent hours watching them while travelling through the Kruger last month. Whether they were foraging, grooming, caring for the young or just fooling around, they kept us glued to our cameras for long periods of time.

    Especially the juveniles, they can be real delinquents when they reach the age of four months or so...

    Hope you enjoy this little sequence, I apologise to you all for not posting for so long but as you know, sequences are hard to come by...

    Kind regards,

    Hi Gabriela - Nice sequence but I want to know where he landed! The first image almost looks like he sees you and has a bit of mischief in his eyes, almost a "dare me" attitude.

    TFS,
    Rachel

    Hello dearest Rachel!

    This little one landed in some bushes, LOL. They are so cute, so playful, so mischievous, a joy to watch. I hope Andre will find some time to process some of his own and share in this forum.

    Thank you so much, I truly appreciate your time to view, as well as kind words:)

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriela Plesea

    Hi Gabriela, these are great! The first photo is a wonderful portrait all on it's own and then we get the fun bonus of the next two. Love the last one and the devil may care pose you caught.
