E=mc2 – Snow Monkey Portrait

Snow monkey (Macaca fuscata)

This is one more image from my trip to Japan, a portrait of a snow monkey (Macaca fuscata) that I took on Japan’s big island, at Jigokudani Yaenkoen National Park. Should you be interested in knowing more about these animals and the place they live in, you can check out my previous snow monkey post that contains information in that regard.

As to the title of this post, I don’t know if it is just me, but whenever I look at this portrait, it vividly reminds me of Albert Einstein! 😉

    This is an absolutely fascinating photo, Stefano. I have seen it before and know it well and I still can sit for ages, just watching this creature. I wouldn’t call him the most beautiful monkey in the world…, 🙂 but he sure ist interesting. The perfect harmony in colours and light in this photo is the captivating magic I think. The beautiful ugliness makes it an unique eyecatcher.
    And, when you say so, I think I can detect the Einstein in him too, hehe! 🙂 What a wonderful expression in his eyes, just as if he’s thinking aloud or listening to you…

    Wishing you all an enjoyable weekend!
    Big hug

    I’ll never look at Albert Einstein in the same way again. 🙂
    This is such a great portrait of a fascinating species of monkey, Stefano. That was one brave monkey that first took the plunge. 🙂
