Early morning breakfast for mother and baby Chacma baboons

Along the banks of the Chobe River one can often find baboons. Over the years, I've learned that there is one particular tree where the Chacma baboon troops like to hang out in the early morning light. This location is a photographer's dream as the background is in dark shadow while the banks of the river are bathed in morning sunlight. This mother and baby baboon feast on a mock orange on the riverbank in this early morning light.
