19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sitting on the Termite Mound

On safari, we were watching the baboons play on the termite mound. The baboons mimic a lot of human behavior. This was almost like the kids game-"king of the mountain". Eventually one of the larger baboons sat down on top and looked at the lens as if he knew he was having his photo taken.
