benmcraephotography I have always seen amazing images of Japanese macaques sitting in water surrounded by snow. The little fellas look so content sitting in the warm water as they happily pose for pictures. It is a scene that I have wanted to photograph for some time but I wanted to put my own twist on the scene. I realised that early spring the snow begins to melt and the macaques have their young. Last seasons cheeky off spring are then left to fend for themselves as the new batch commands all of a parents attention. These cheeky juveniles love to play and frolic in the water, they are not afraid of getting close to the camera so therefore pose for any waiting photographers. This little bloke spent the morning stroking the water, occasionally he would dive under the water in search of food to only return back to his little podium once again.
