Nice shot, Klaus. Baboons spend lots of time - somewhere around 20 percent of their day - grooming each other. The look for insects, dead skin, etc., and the ritual is a large part of their social learning structure. This estrus female is probably teaching her young son about the nature of being a baboon.

Nice image and good behavioral study.

Nice Clear Picture.
The Focal Length suggests that you were too close to the subject.
Good blurred background which stands the subject out.
