I've been going through some of the kazillion images I haven't processed yet, for a presentation for National Geographic I gave last week. This was shot on last year's Japan workshop.

 

These snow monkeys are just übercool. During the cold winter months they like to bathe in the natural hot springs, very clever. For most animals, water is just something they need to drink or wash with, but these guys really know how to enjoy a warm bath.

 

I'm off to Alaska now, to see if can find some bathing bears.

 

If you would like to join me on one of my workshops, please have a look at my website.
