Second Place

"Many hands make light work"

A macaque being groomed at the Jigokudani snow monkey park in the Nagano Prefecture in Japan, March 4, 2016.

The Jigokudani snow monkey park has become a major tourist hot spot, attracting visitors from all over the world hoping to get a glimpse of these amazing creatures huddled together in hot springs. But because of the warmer than usual weather during this time, the macaques were frequently found lazing about on some nearby rocks instead of spending much of their time keeping warm in hot springs.
