I like all the caribou photos and the moose one too. My favorites would be the second caribou photo and the moose.



(I never can figure out how Noel gets his "models" to line up so nicely - who is he "Dr. Dolittle"?)

here is a Blue - Diademed - Monkey (Cercopithecus ascanius) photographed high in the trees on Mount Meru in Arusha National Park in Tanzania. All photographs have been cropped.

Mount Meru is one of the tallest mountains in Africa and the 2nd largest in Tanzania behind Kilimanjaro


Big thanks to Noel for help on the id


This was the only time we saw this type of monkey. (We also only found the Black and White Colobus Monkeys on Mount Meru.)

Well now, Dr Doolittle would be an accurate description. I do little most of the time and only take photos. The secret, after years of visiting Game and Nature reserves, is knowing what animals will do, The Zebra herd were heading for the water hole, and all I had to do was wait. And that is probably the best kept secret. Same with these warthogs-just waited for them to look up from their grazing.

I waited a long time for a big grey rhino lying on the ground to raise its head, but ran out of patience. Just as well, turned out to be a boulder.

there seems to be a trend here

3 elephants


3 grazers (2 zebra and a wildebeest)


nice photos all


I will add 3 black-and -white Colobus monkeys found on Mount Meru, (one of the highest mountains in Africa) in the Arusha National Park in Tanzania.


We only saw these monkeys (and Blue monkeys) on Mount Meru and all were high in the trees. The photo is highly cropped but no other pp

Considering that was taken in October 2015- I should think it "was" pregnant, unless the horror side of nature took its toll on her.

Mating pair of lions- the female is just visible
