18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A curious Vervet monkey

I was on Safari in Samburu National reserve and one day whilst eating lunch, I noticed a young Vervet monkey slowly making his way toward me. He eventually settled in a tree nearby and was superbly backlit by the sun. He watched keenly before being eventually called away by his kin.
