GOOD FENCES - Monkeys and Baboons

While the family and myself were staying at Montford Cottage in Malawi, every morning I walked down the road to see the Monkeys and Baboons playing.  I have cropped out some fences so you could see them in close up.  Also there were huge rocks and trees that they loved scampering over and I wanted you to see their world.
















I have more photographs but some people find it difficult to upload them all sometimes due to slow Internet connections so I will show you more Baboons with their young on Saturday Critters and also you will see them then on video.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the Monkeys and Baboons even through there were not many fences in the post.   

By the way, all my Black and White photographs of yesterday were first taken in colour and apparently this is a better way of shooting them and then turning them into Black and White.  When I publish more B & W on Google+, I will do another post here on my blog as a lot of you seemed to have enjoyed them and have even been inspired to try them yourselves. 

I apoligise to those who had a sneak preview of tomorrows' post due to me pressing the wrong button today, however I have now deleted it.  You will have to wait until then!

I am linking to GOOD FENCES.

Thank you for visiting and also to everyone who leaves comments.

  7. Utterly amazing ! I can only imagine how wonderful it must be to see these in person. I loved looking at these in the slideshow format. Thanks for doing that on your blog.

  8. The stone wall is lovely. It take me a while to get used to having monkeys and baboons in the neighbourhood. Monkeys are so clever that I imagine they might be a bit of a problem because of the curiosity. :)

  29. Gorgeous photos of an animal that sometimes gets a bad press. Difficult to fence them in.
