Japanese Macaques, Nagano

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos
Japanese macaques, also known as snow monkeys, stay warm in the winter by bathing in the natural hot springs at Nagano. The parents go to great lengths to protect their young. I saw this scene of two monkeys relaxing with a curious infant and captured the moment.
