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

Our group had stayed at the monkey park the entire day. The sun was getting low. Our guide had suggested that we consider looking for back-lit subjects. I saw some monkeys crossing over a wall to head up the cliff. I repositioned so that the sun was behind them. Finally I saw one lone monkey starting across and I got the shot.

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.
