POTW: Momma And Baby Baboon

A troop of baboons scampered across the road in front of us as we wound through the dusty and bumpy roads of the Samburu Game Reserve.  A couple of babies clung tightly to their mothers’ backs as they ran in front of our safari van.  Once they stopped in the bushes along the road side, the babies slid off Momma before hastily climbing back on.  This shy little baboon was a little more curious and peered around Momma at us.
