[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the monkeys of Jigokudani. Most of you have seem them in a slightly different setting. The typical picture is of them sitting in a hot spring covered in snow. This shot was taken in the Spring when they tend to wander a bit farther from home. The picture was taken in the forest surrounding the hot springs. It was a sunny day but there were lots of shadows in the trees. The only adjustment to the picture was to crop it to a vertical format.

For more information on the monkeys and their habitat, take a look at the Monkey Park site.

Je trouve cette photo trés belle et surprenante en ce qui conserne, la lumière, la netteté, les couleurs, la prise de vue, le spécimen et aussi le fait qu'il a été pris en pleine nature. Vraiment vous méritez plusieurs éloges. FÉLICITATIONS !

He doesn't look too happy does he? Wonderful photo and the kind of lighting I like best, soft and interesting. TFS.
