Oriol Alamany - Baboon hands

Oriol Alamany - Baboon hands

After some months working in Spain taking pictures of wildlife mostly scared from people, I like to travel to a foreign country where animals are not afraid. There I can work freely with them, experimenting different approaches not possible at home, like closeups, wideangle, etc. This image was taken in Kenya from a van window. A group of baboons were very near our car, when I saw one of them sitting, looking at us with their hands crossed in a very human like pose. I used a long 500 mm telephoto lens to frame only the hands.

Location: Masai Mara, Kenya
