I think this is a young Cape baboon who are notorious for pestering tourists. Taken on a trip out to Cape Point (The Cape of Good Hope). In 1580 Francis Drake called it "the fairest cape in the whole circumference of the globe"

Its an OK shot. Good focus on the eyes. I would have liked to see him/her extracted a bit more from the background. A narrower DOF would have been good. Composition wise I would have liked to see the baboon more to the right-hand side of the frame, to make it look into the picture. Unfortunately, the grasses in the foreground are distracting, especially the upper one which cutes his face into 2 parts. I notice how I first see the eyes and then stop to 'jump over the grass' to get to the rest of the picture. A narrower DOF might have sorted that as well as the straws would then not be equally prominent in the picture.
