Photo Journal: Spring snack

A monkey is seen snacking on cherry blossoms in Komagane, Nagano Prefecture, in this recent photo. Trees reached full bloom in this area this week, and in front of a local hot spring facility, a group of 20 or so monkeys, including babies, were spotted chowing down on the spring treat. Whether the flowers taste good or not, no one can be sure, but the monkeys appeared to prefer the buds over the open blossoms. (Mainichi)
