Masai Moment

Your Shot contributor Bjorn Persson counts this picture of a baby baboon in Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve as a personal favorite. “It was one of those rare moments where everything just clicked,” including light, eye contact, and perspective, Persson says.

“We were out on safari one late evening, and suddenly we were surrounded by what felt like hundreds of baboons. They were all around us, acting very curious, and after a few minutes I discovered this little newborn looking out from its mother’s safe bosom. For a long time we made eye contact, and after a while I realized that it wasn’t me studying him, it was him studying me.”
