[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
First sunrise during safari in Tanzania. Birds at the top of the tree are Marabou, down in the branches Baboons.

The Marabou Stork, Leptoptilos crumeniferus, is a large wading bird in the stork family Ciconiidae. It breeds in Africa south of the Sahara, occurring in both wet and arid habitats, often near human habitation, especially waste tips.

Baboons are terrestrial (ground dwelling) and are found in open savannah, open woodland and hills across Africa.

one could almost mistake your photo for a Japanese stamp. very sensual. congrats!

Very nice. The silhouette is perfect, with beautiful, warm colors. Well composed.

The silhouetted birds and monkeys in the tree add additional interest.
