The snow monkeys of jigokudani

During a visit to Japan in 2011, I encountered a very particular species of primates better known as the Japanese snow monkeys or better Japanese macaques. I made sure to wake up early that morning to get their early movement along the forest and whilst it had snowed heavily during the night, nothing was going to stop my interest to have a closer look of these macaques.
