After a hard morning foraging for food, one of the benefits of high rank is that you can get to choose a prime resting spot.

This male Vervet Monkey keeps an eye on me as he makes himself comfortable as he settles down to rest in the fork of a tree in our garden. The rest of the troop were also catching some R&R, with several indulging in grooming sessions while youngsters played discreetly during this quiet period of the day.
