Japanese Macaque

By Sus  
Also known as the Japanese Snow Monkey, these monkeys gather to warm themselves in the hot springs especially when it snows.

Any comments on the colour balancing particularly welcome - an Autolevels adjustment warmed the picture pleasingly, but I am not sure realistically, so I reduced the effect a bit.
