Vervet monkeys

Those little monkeys are present all around the Moremi National Park (Botswana). We met them even inside our encampment where they were not afraid to come and steal some food (and also kill a francolin hiding a nest in a bush between the tents). Their little shyness is an advantage for the photographer because, with some patience and slow moves, it is quite possible to shoot pictures that pertain more to portraiture than to the usual wild animal safari photography.
