This Japanese Macaque has just risen from a hot spring that provides temporary warmth for these animals in the cold Japanese winter. It doesn’t take long for water drops to turn to ice however and the expression on this monkey’s face reminds me of someone enduring the winter blues.

Amateur photographer of wildlife and outdoor scenes, inspired by a love of travel. I'm an Australian based in the UK who feels most at home when exploring the world beyond it. I feel particularly connected to Africa and the polar regions and feel energised by locations offering the opportunity to see wildlife thriving in its natural habitat.
