Feeling safe in Japan

I have photographed Japanese Macaques all around Japan during the past ten years, but the ones living in the proximity of hot baths were by far the most photogenic. I spent a few days with these cute creatures in Jigokudani National Park of the Japan Alps, Nagano, and was lucky to have several babies around. This little one, sitting on its mother’s back in the middle of water pool shows eyes full of fear, yet symbolizes maternal security.
