He is the second boss, compared with others, he seems to be so nervese and careful of surrounding. Maybe that is his mission. In fact I would go there again as there would be heavy snow but the climate has changed, so I quit. Next time I want to shot under heavy snow and monkey with thick heavy above the head---.

Encore une très bonne photo de ce singe des neiges. La profondeur de champ est peut-être un peu trop courte donnant une zone de netteté un peu trop petite?

Hi Takero, I see you fell in love with these snow monkeys. And not possible not to do that. Adorable creatures and fantastic photos.
Warm regrads from Warsaw

He looks like he is ready for action at any moment, to protect his family. Good sharpness upon his face and I like the reflection captured too.

These monkeys are absolutely wonderful. They are animals and behave like animals, and still there is something so deeply human in their looks. Our kinship is so evident and fascinating. This is another superb photo with very good sharpness and light. A perfect composition too.

superb "human" portrait, well focused with a shallow DOF to get the BG blurred, nice reflection too.

Hello dear Takero
Been a while since I dropped by...
Quite a departure from your usual posts, this series. This picture is the crowning shot here. Great dof to bring out the face and brilliant colours.
Take care & best wishes for 2014.

This is a fantastic shot with perfect quality. Great POV and composition, excellent DOF and colours, congratulation.

un ritratto di gran classe, eccellente messa a fuoco, un colpo da mestro.
Anche questo boss farà strada, ha la grinta giusta e lo sguardo molto attento.

now this is truly funny photo and very well captured moment. The monkey shot from this POV looks like fury ball - very cute and charming. Lovely framing, colors and focus. Very good DOF.
Have a lovely weekend

Très bien habillé pour l'hiver ce singe des neiges. Une autre magnifique photo de ta série avec de bons détails du visage et une belle expression devant la caméra.
Tous mes compliments et bonne fin de semaine,

He certainly does not look as happy as the others, and your always masterful use of depth of field has brought the attention firmly to his harsh expression. This series is wonderful Takero, and I have really enjoyed seeing these creatures in this habitat. Love the partial reflection in the water too, and the icy colors in contrast to his red face.
Best wishes from a cold Ireland

You really have a wonderful array of great pictures from these amazing monkeys. This one looks like he has spent to much time under the hair drier. The funny look really makes me smile.
have a great time

Sharpness and clarity make your picture nice.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

encore une magnifique photo de ces merveilleux singes des neiges. Celui ci a l'air particulièrement déterminé. En tant que boss, peut être se sent il responsable de la sécurité des autres? Merci pour cette serie de portraits très intéressants et superbement photographiés.
still a beautiful picture of these wonderful snow monkeys. This one seems particularly determined. As a boss, he feels may be responsible for the safety of others? Thank you for this series of very interesting and beautifully photographed portraits.

Hello dear Takero-san
An amazing picture yet again of the snow monkey with precise focus on his face as he looks directly at your camera. His red face really stands out.
Best Regards from less-hot Mumbai

I like very much this ape séries, you should write a theme about it
Very good catch with a very nice backlights

macjake (55614) 2014-01-26 19:31
another great looking photo from these monkeys :)
it was hard to pick and choose only 1.
I chose this photo because its an unusual perspective.
cool to see the frost and the eyes.
adores (36219) 2014-01-27 16:21
Another great one, with very good focus! The pose and the expressions are fabulous. A perfect portrait, you got a great series there!
