Species: Japanese Snow Monkey | Location: Jigokudani Monkey Park, Japan
We had arrived at the monkey park early in the morning. The light was still low and there was no snow. The monkeys finally arrived and I looked for interesting behavior. I saw a small group of monkeys and focused on them, hoping something interesting would happen. Two started acting aggressively towards each other, and I hoped that one would turn with it's face toward me. The monkey cooperated and I was able to get the shot.

About The Photographer
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.
