Oriol Alamany - Geladas in the mist
The gelada (Theropithecus gelada) or gelada baboon, is a monkey found only in the Ethiopian Highlands. Geladas are actually not baboons but the only living members of the genus Theropithecus. Like its close relatives the baboons (genus Papio), it is largely terrestrial, spending much of its time foraging in grasslands. Last September, the participants in our photo tour to the Ethiopia mountains and me spend a lot of time laying on the ground taking photos among the peaceful groups of these wonderful primates. The photo is taken at more than 3000 meters of altitude.
