Simien Mountains, Northern Ethiopia 2018

Every year as CGI capability improves, a richer and richer diet of fantasy monsters and creatures appear in movies and TV series. We drift into new worlds and escape from our own. And yet, and here is the irony, on our planet today there are animals that are almost beyond the stuff of fantasy but they are very real.

I am not sure what this large gelada baboon was thinking, but I am going to guess that he found my presence, 12,000 feet up, a little irritating. This was his patch of land and who the hell was I to be trespassing? I have travelled the world in search of fresh detail and fresh content and this March, in the Simien Mountains, was a truly special experience. Not for him I am sure, but certainly for me. We will never meet again.
