16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Japanese Snow Monkey

In the snowy winter these Japanese macaques come down from the hills to sit in the hot springs created especially for them. Tourists come from all over to take their photos but they don't seem to mind and just relax in the warmth of the water!
