Vervet Monkey - Cercopithecus aethiops

I came upon one of the many troops of Vervet Monkeys on the banks of the Orange River in southern Namibia.

The adults, having encountered humans before, scattered as soon as they saw my camera, (they often get shot at and are wary of people pointing anything at them), but a couple of youngsters, unable to contain their curiosity, hung out in the trees above me for awhile.
