The last photo safari I attended was the evening of the last day at the safari lodge. The guide committed to help us find the elusive Black Rhinoceros. Unfortunately, he proved to be more elusive than expected so we did not see him. We did, however, run across this wonderful male Vervet Monkeys. You may remember the post that I did a few days ago about the Vervet Monkeys that had invited the parking lot at the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. This one was out in the wild and was not too happy about something.
Safety in numbers. Living in a large family group has its advantages. They can defend themselves and their young more effectively against predators and rival groups that may want to take over their feeding grounds. Their ability to sound the alarm for potential threats from the ground and air makes them very effective at avoiding predators.
This image was taken with my Canon EOS 5DS using my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 II Lens set on 400mm. The camera was set on Aperture priority mode with the aperture set at f/8, shutter speed at 1/160th of a second and the ISO set at 1600. This was a single image processed in Lightroom.
