A closeup image reveals the texture and beauty of this Japanese Macaque's (Macaca fuscata) facial features.  This baby snow monkey and her Mom had just come down from the mountainside, and were readying to jump into the pool.  It was easily in the negative degrees F outside, but after this baby got in the water you couldn't tell the temperature around it was subzero.  Beautiful and staunch.<br />
