  3. I recently read an article and photo feature on the snow monkeys of Japan. They have a fascinating hierarchy and when I see your photo here and the story attached to the prior one, the hierarchy makes more sense to me. It seems to be a developed way of managing population levels. If food is scare and/or difficult to access in winter, there is a built-in mechanism for controlling numbers. Those who access food most successfully, survive.

  4. Mom and baby are perfect in sepia as we see their faces clearly. It is interesting that so many animals are the same as human as they bring their babies along. Compared to human moms, though, it looks a bit easier if the baby is carried on the backs instead of in the arms...

  7. these are beautiful creatures Yoshi. it breaks my heart that they may be going hungry. the little one's face in the first photo is so dear, peeking out from its place of safety. I'm unfamiliar with these monkeys, I know them only from a zoo. to see them running free must be a very special thing. I'm glad you photograph them Yoshi, and you do a wonderful job. yes, I'm a lefty - eating and writing only. have a beautiful evening!

  16. Poor monkys, It is very difficult to live with wild animals in harmony. We have the same problem in Nara. The deer eat trash and food leftover and get sick to death.

    Your pictures are very expressive and great!

  18. Mom has to carry the kids around in the animal world too. Fortunately, the animals get to stop before the kids become teenagers. Oh, there is the "Mom, take me to..." cry from downstairs.

  21. What a wonderful capture you have shared here.

    Does this mean that they are hungry and being displaced by building? So many animals here in Arizona are like that...and it is sad.

    The top picture was so sweet and touching and now I am saddened to think they might be starving.

    Thanks for a perplexing link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter 'P'.

    A+
