Baboons (Papio cynocephalus) sit on a heap at the base of a tree taking in the last rays of sunlight before going aloft to their perch for the night. The gnarled and twisted dead wood protects the perimeter of their temporary garden and home, probably providing refuge to bugs and mites which may become breakfast shortly after dawn.
