Soaking in the Hot Spring

Species: Japanese Snow Monkey | Location: Jigokudani Monkey Park, Japan

We arrived early to our hotel and headed out to the monkey park for a short afternoon of photographing the monkeys. Unfortunately there was no snow, except on the trail to the park. The day was overcast, but the monkeys were active in the hot springs. I was able to capture this monkey looking at me.

About The Photographer

Marian pantanaal

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
