Vervet Monkey (Chlorocebus pygerythrus)

I have captured this 'Vervet Monkey' with her new born little one at Kruger National Park during our staying at Pretorioukop Rest Camp. Vervet Monkey can be found through out Southern Africa as well as a few parts of Eastern Africa.
This mostly herbivores Monkey has black face with Grey body hair color.
Vervet were introduced in Florida, St. Kitts and Cape Verde too.

Hi Srikumar,what say...this is a fantastic shot! The eye contact is incredible,a masterwork for the National Geographic Magazine,no doubts! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hi Srikumar,

The tight frame is putting the monkey in evidence. The point of view is showing the details of the Vervet Monkey and her new born. The light is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
