Default picture of Spanish soldiers, early 20th century?

I do not collect military pictures. However I very much like the picture of this group of men. They are Spanish, but corps and period eludes me.
Corrected 20200125: French chasseurs, 157th regiment

Thank you very much for your suggestions. I would not have found them without your assistance.
They are chasseurs from "Le 157e régiment d'infanterie"

and their collar numbers.
