A good 2010 to you and Maggie. Glad to hear Japan was successful.
Hence this great portrait. You have given us the chance to look into those eyes and wonder. A cracking image for the New Year.

An excellent study. It does look cold, but perhaps that's just the white whiskers. Looking forward to seeing your images from this trip Ron.

It's seems like no time since you left Ron, I'll bet you had a fabulous time. Looking frward to the images. I recall seeing these snow monkeys in Life Magazine way back in the 60's, and was astonished at then crouching in the warm water with icycles habging from their fur.
