日本猴子泡温泉玩自拍,“温泉”英语怎么说?

富士山是日本的重要标志,然而近日,一张猴子在温泉中拿着手机的照片爆红网络。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

The picture was taken by wildlife photographer Marsel Van Oouten, showing a monkey playing with a phone at the hot springs in Jigokudani in Japan.
"We were standing close to the edge of the hot spring when one of the tourists started taking shots with her iPhone. Suddenly, the macaque grabbed the iPhone from her hands — and quickly moved away towards the middle of the hot spring," Marsel said.
"Meanwhile, I was fully aware that this would result in some of the most original snow monkey shots ever."


这张照片由摄影师马赛尔·范·欧斯汀拍摄,照片里,一只猴子在日本的地域谷温泉里边泡温泉边玩手机。

马赛尔说道,“我们都站在温泉的岸边,这时有一位游客在用她的iPhone拍照。突然,那只猴子从她手里拿走了iPhone,然后快速移动到了温泉的中央。”

“与此同时,我意识到,这是拍摄雪猴原始照片的最佳时机了。”
