The Alpha Male

I have seen baboons in Africa before, but until now, had never photographed one.

During a morning game drive in the Mara North Conservancy of Kenya, we were looking for a leopard, and encountered a troop of baboons numbering over 20, playing in a tree during the warmth of the morning light after sunrise.

This alpha male was sitting out on the grass, and as he looked at me, I captured his portrait.
