Grooming Drills by ApeArt

I love these boys. I was lucky enough to work with them in Cameroon.

The male drill is one of the most colourful monkeys in the world. When he is grown up he has a red chin on a black face with raised grooves exaggerating the shape of his nose. Also, his bottom is pink, mauve and blue! These bright colours help his family follow him through the forest.

The drill only lives in three countries: Cameroon’s Southwest Province, South East Nigeria and Bioko Island in Equatorial Guinea.

The drill is an endangered primate. A mother drill only has one young every six years, and a hunter can easily kill 30 Drills in a day. They are also losing their forest home.

There are only 300 left in the forests.

    Another classic moment captured :o) You have achieved a wonderous DOF to give these guys the 3D quality which every photographer strives for. His arm and face have such a photographic quality as one was looking at them in real life and not a photo. Very nice work indeed :o)

  • Hey Paul thanks so much, lovely comments :)
