She(or he) is guessed to be 0.5 year old, as a Japanese mokey is born in Summer. This cold season is the first time for her(or him). What she(or he) think about whiling bathing in the comfortable hot spring?

this is so beautiful! Excellent portrait with perfectly sharp baby monkey and blurred everything else. It has such pretty eyes. In spite of its young age it makes a serious look here.
Very well captured!
A real master piece!

Una foto molto bells nella quale la tecnica fa la sua parte ma la cui bellezza sta essenzialmente nell'aversaputo cogliere un attimo di grande espressività.

Hello dear Takero,
this is a stunning and captivating portrait of a little monkey that really seems to be thinking... Its features and glance have been rendered with striking sharpness and its vivid colours make it stand out superbly amid a blurry but recognizable environment. Your approach and light management are brilliant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

These portraits have all been wonderful, Takero, but this one is really outstanding - just beautiful, with this cute little monkey peeking over the wall. Individual droplets are visible in the fur, with such a delicate DOF that her paws are blurred, putting all of the focus on her tiny face. Adorable!

What a cute and adorable little fellow you got yourself in front of your lens. He/she really seems to reflect at what life will hold in store for him/her or is it simply that he/she is fed up with winter and wants to get out of the tub as any youngster allways will.
The snow monkeys of Japan are on my bucket list for some time now and your great portrait just revives my wish.
The perfect DOF lets one really concentrate on his huge eyes.
have a great day

Great portrait of the little monkey:)! He seems so sad! I like the expression a lot and the focus is also very good, leaving the other two monkeys in the blurred background.
