Colubus Monkey- Mt. Kenya
Trout-Tree Colobus. The background blurring is called 'bokeh' and happens (in this case deliberately) by shooting with a large (wide open) aperture to create a narrow plane of focus- aka depth of field. Generally, the better the lens the better the bokeh. To get this effect with a point-and-shoot camera, try setting on the portrait mode. The scenery mode will usually do the opposite, providing a greater depth of field.
