The Vervet Monkeys is a smaller monkey in Tanzania and a nice colony lives in the forest of Ngorongoro Crater. The parents interchange baby watch and have no problem handling a child that isn’t their own.
Such a wonderful community where mom’s help each other.
Just like little humans aren’t they? So gorgeous, Emily.
LOL ! Total characters Miriam. Wow..I really am behind on my comments. I am so sorry my dear.
That’s okay. It’s this thing called “life” that gets in the way! 🙂
I have many fun(ny) memories of these monkeys from my time in Africa. Great shots! Those babies are too cute.
Is that right Tiny? They really did impress me too. Thank you so much for your patience in responding to your comment.
What delightful little sweet-peas – gorgeous captures! 🙂
Thank you for your kind compliment Joanne and waiting for me to actually respond to you. So sorry. 🙂
Oh Emily these are such wonderful images! So touching 🙂 I can spot the “problem child” lol 😉 Had to laugh at the baby in the first one sticking it’s tongue out 😛 Thank you for sharing such intimate portraits of the family 🙂
LOL ! Isn’t that the truly. That one was hilarious. You are so kind Sarah and thrilled that you enjoyed this series. Please accept my apologies for responding so late.
No apologies necessary!! I’m often slow getting back to people or just finding time to make comments in the first place 😉 Life gets in the way 😀
It really does and I’ve had this blog near 4 years now and post so much. Sometimes I just get burnt out. 🙂 Happy week to you.
I know that feeling!! I will take a break while we’re on holiday this year. There has to be a balance between actually living life, photographing life and sharing it! I spend a lot of time processing too and don’t like to feel rushed with that creative aspect. I have lots of friends who go on about all sorts of other social media platforms, marketing, selling, competitions etc etc, but I just don’t have the time if I’m still going to manage to do the work in the first place!
LOL ! You’re like me Sarah. I’d rather be out exploring and photographing. Minor editing time. Although tons of pics makes that hard. Marketing eeehhh..selling..nope. Contests…nope (waste of money) Social media – facebook is fun. 🙂 Good luck finding a balance. It’s not easy.
Luck to us both!! Yeah I do Facebook but I run out of energy after that 😉
Primate photography must be incredibly rewarding. Enjoyed all.
It’s a blast Nick and I could watch them all day. Surely you’ll get the chance if you haven’t already done so. Thank you.
