Monkey Takes Self-Portrait

In a report filed by The Telegraph, photographer David Slater got a little extra help from a crested black macaque on a recent trip to Indonesia. After setting up his camera equipment to photograph the monkeys, Slater turned away momentarily only to discover one of the macaques had swiped the camera and was taking photos of his own.

 Slater states that the monkey took hundreds of photographs, but only a few were in focus. He believes the macaque was attracted to the camera first by the reflection in the lens and then by the sound of the shutter.
