Old World Monkeys

A family together around a tree, the elders up top to survey their surroundings, the younger on lower branches playing, babies on the ground with their mothers, being protected. It’s the largest gathering of baboons I’ve ever seen….

The theory of evolution is so blatantly apparent if one chooses to see it. The interactions between them, social dynamics, the hierarchy of the group.

They seem to be studying me as intently as I am them. It’s a funny connection, yet one that seems to make perfect sense out here in the African wild.

Wench, bring my ale, what say you?
