Japanese Macaque mother and young snuggling up together in a big ball of fur. Sitting only centimeters away from a small but very warm hot spring, they manage to keep each other warm.

A wildlife photographer from Sweden residing on the small Mediterranean island of Malta. From an early age I was passionate about animals and the natural world. Before Animal Planet, Nat Geo Wild and the likes, I was always glued in front of the weekly nature program on Swedish state television. No matter if it was lions in Africa, wolves in Yellowstone or Polar bears in Svalbard, I practically grew up with Sir David Attenborough’s voice at the back of my head.
