Photographer's Note

In my second posting of the Japanese Snow Monkeys...

This wild adult Macque scrounges through the snow looking for morsels of food. Due to the climate this time of year, that would consist of seeds or roots mainly.

I really like this shot as it clearly shows the intensity in his eyes. The Snow Macaque is characterized by its red face, on which no hair grows. Older animals have redder faces; those of young or sexually immature animals are often lighter.

More information can be found here... Japanese Snow Monkeys.

All the best,
- Dan
