Simien Mountains – Split-Toned Gelada Baboons
by John Downey
Geladas are endemic to Ethiopia, alternatively known as Bleeding Heart baboons for a red heart-shaped patch of skin centered on the chest. These images are as close as they look. I was able to get within one meter of some of them; rather, some sat next to me. After reviewing these, I selected a series of split-toned monochrome frames for this post.
