Yesterday’s scenes of playful baboons rolling through the daisies and generally romping about set an upbeat mood for the day. The veld offers a good choice of food after the winter rain and the troop looks healthy with a number of new babies. The animals still have their thick winter ‘coats’ which as it warms up, will gradually be shed. In the second photograph is a most impressive sight – a female baboon with a set of bulging cheek pouches – you can see how her jawline pops. What has she been storing, one wonders?

Animals are beautiful
They look relaxed and healthy! How close were you Liz? Your photos are fantastic.
Such lovely portraits Liz.
Baboons and daisies? Not something that I thought would ever go together. I’ve learnt something…
They know how to choose a beautiful spot for a picnic!
Beautiful captures of moments in the daily lives of these fascinating animals.
Thanks Theresa, i’m always thankful for these lucky sightings and the opportunity to observe the baboons and their actions. Never a dull moment 🙂
