Japanese Macaque or snow monkey takes a bath in the hot springs that feed into the valley of the Yokoyu-River at Jigokudani Yaen Kōen. Literally meaning "Hell's Valley", Jigokudani was named after the steam and boiling water that bubbles out of small crevices in the frozen ground which is surrounded by steep cliffs.

I visited this amazing place in Bali, and yes, the monkeys are wild!
Howler monkeys (genus Alouatta monotypic in subfamily Alouattinae) are among the largest of the New World monkeys and one of only a few nest-building monkeys. Fifteen species are currently recognised. Previously classified in the family Cebidae, they are now placed in the family Atelidae. These monkeys are native to South and Central American forests. Threats to howler monkeys include human predation, habitat destruction and being captured for captivity as pets or zoo animals. These monkeys are famous for their loud howls, which can travel three miles through dense rainforest.

In August 2010, my wife and I visited a national park in Zanzibar, Africa called Jozani Forest. This forest is best known for its Red Colobus Monkeys. These monkeys are only found on the island of Zanzibar.
Our tour guide took us into the forest and brought us to where these monkeys were having their morning breakfast.
It was amazing seeing these monkeys in their natural habitat and yet they were only an arm's length away.

At first this monkey did not mind his photo being taken - see below - then he changed his mind !!!! - There was glass in between the monkey and the lens.......
Three Monkeys at Rome Zoo inspecting one another in the March sunshine.
I quite like this picture as the monkey knows I'm here and is obviously showing his appreciation in having his photo taken.
Came across this cute monkey in Tunisia, I guess he was there to attract the customers to the mans stall, I just hope he was well looked after.
Thankyou for looking :-)
Picture in the first comment if you want to look :-)
This is an image of a wild monkey in Bali. I really love its expression and keeping it a low depth of field really helps to keep your attention on the emotions of the animal.
Well some days are good days, some days are bad days, and some days are just monkey business.
What will/was today for you ?
Btw, this is a very young chimp...about 1 yr I think.
Oooh, I'm not sure about that
Another shot from an August day at Newqay Zoo when my daughter had a morning as a junior keeper. These little squirrel monkey's are just about my favourite critters there. They're so characterful and expressive.
This is a photo of a wild monkey in Bali, I really like the way he warns me not to come any closer by becoming giving me a aggressive pose and bearing his teeth, I used a very wide aperture to remove and distraction behind him and to create a lovely bokeh.
