14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Portrait of a Japanese Snow Monkey
I was shooting snow monkeys in Jidokudani park. The monkeys were all fighting and pulling at each others fur. I was photographing a mother and her child when suddenly all of them stopped moving and this male walked out. I had to get a shot of his face. In the moment I did not realize. But now I see he looked like a lion.
