Camera: Canon EOS 50D; Lens: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM Telephoto; Focal length: 200mm; Aperture: f/5.6; Shutter speed: 1/320; ISO: 800

The photo above was taken in South Africa's Kruger National Park early in the morning. There was a small troop of chacma baboons in a large tree to our right. It was winter and the baboons were warming themselves in the rays of the morning sun, unconcerned by our presence. The warm, soft light cast a lovely golden glow on our subjects, inviting us to stop for a while and enjoy the scene.
