Simien Mountain Profile

A gelada from the mountains of northern Ethiopia.


This is a cheeky photograph of a gelada baby baboon feeding from mother – from her expression, he isn’t sucking gently. He is in profile, however.

Maverick doctor with 40 years experience, I reduced my NHS commitment in 2013. I am now enjoying being free lance, working where I am needed overseas. Now I am working in the UK helping with the current coronavirus pandemic.


  1. Ian, I have never seen Geadas before and I appreciate your share so much. The captures are beautiful. The second one would be a winner if this was a contest 🙂 THANK YOU.
