Photo Of The Month: Kevin Dooley

Kevin Dooley from the USA

Traversing through the highlands of Ethiopia is both a rewarding and exciting journey. We were there to photograph the four endemic species of the area; the Ethiopian Wolf, the Thick-billed Raven, the Bleeding-Heart Monkey and the Walia Ibex. Of those four species, I knew the chances of seeing the Ethiopian Wolf were slim- to-none and we were fortunate enough to locate one while we were there.

This image is the Bleeding-Heart Monkey, a species I have wanted to photograph for years. We located these monkeys on the edge of some very steep cliffs. After a bit of hiking, we were able to get close enough for some great images. We spent the entire afternoon photographing these amazing animals and managed to locate them again the next morning.

Ethiopia is a stunningly beautiful place with magical photographic opportunities.
