Snow monkeys have a very strong hierarchy. To decide who's boss they often have violent arguments, and this guy usually wins. Wherever he goes, the rest of the macaques make sure they're not bothering him.

Shot on our White & Wild Japan photo tour.

If you're interested in joining me on this trip to photograph snow monkeys, Japanese cranes, Steller's sea eagles and whooper swans, please check out my website for more information:

Our 2014 tour filled up really fast, so we set up a second one.

Hope to see you there!
