Welcome aboard...Looks like a great image to jump right in with...i don't know if you know it or not, but National Geographic had an image of these monkeys but were covered in snow...so you are in good standings

I missed it when you posted this! This is my all time favorite photo of yours Donna! If you ever have a chance to watch a video called Baraka, ck it out...There is a scene in it of these monkeys in a hot spring in the snow! It is awesome!

Donna, it's also my favorite image of yours. Life time capture. It's candid, models were concentrated on their internal feelings, you caught their emotion best possible way. Amazing how human-like this image looks.

I'm happy to be able to leave comment on this masterpiece.
