Juvenile Baboon on Termine Mound

Juvenile Baboon - 1DX, 200-400 @ 560mm, f/5.6, 1/160s, ISO 800
A juvenile Baboon climbed up on top of a termite mound to get a better look at the surroundings.  I made this image around the beginning of an afternoon game drive (5:30 or so) near Sandibe camp.  In the image from yesterday, those traces of last night, just that small touch is what made it interesting.  A similar thing is true here, its that little bit of back lighting lighting up the edges of the Baboon's fur that make this interesting for me.  I could have cropped this image tighter (what you see here is completely uncropped) but I liked the idea of leaving as much of the termite mound as possible in there to show a little bit of the environment.
