My sister is a zookeeper at the North Carolina Zoo, her main job is taking care of the baboons. This little dude was taking a break from running around with all his little baboon buddies.

Wow what a great photo perk for her brother!
Cute pic for sure - made me smile. Very funny and sharp facial gesture. The light hits the eyes well. I also like the framing.
as for critique - I'd likely burn in all around the top perimeter of the tree trunk - I'd also bring down the tail a wee bit. This allows more attention to go straight to the babooner's face.

Thanks for the critique, Marko. I appreciate it! These little guys were hilarious as they ran around their enclosure.

I love this shot on many levels- the composition, technical image and story

Just so cute, and you have captured the playful character so well here.

Very cute indeed. Agree with the previous comments. Nice processing and the vignette is very nice on this.

So human. Well ... maybe without the tail and hair anyhow. Lucky you to have the opportunity. What has caused the strong yellow cast? Reflection/diffusion off or through something nearby I'm guessing?
