Photographer's Note

A Blue ape is the most common species in South Africa; they are social animals that live in herds of up to 40 animals, normally controlled by the most dominant male. The leader defends the territory, lead them to feed, and when they do, he picks out a high vantage point and watch out for predators. Sometimes he is accompanied by his sons and other males. Males stay with the herd for up to 4 years and are then normally chased away by the leader. Females on the other hand normally stay with the herd and can fall pregnant after 2 years.
