Gelada group grooming

A group of Gelada monkeys grooming in Simien Mountains, northwestern Ethiopia, at an altitude of 3700m. They sleep somewhere on the steep cliffs because of leopards and in the morning they come up to socialize while grooming before they go and feed on grass, which is their main food.
