A critically endangered macaque monkey took his own photographs after grabbing a camera that had been left lying around by award-winning photographer David Slater!

While visiting a national park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, Mr. Slater inadvertently left his camera unattended for a while. The forgotten camera soon attracted the attention of an inquisitive female from a local group of crested black macaque monkeys, known for their intelligence and dexterity. Fascinated by her reflection in the lens, she then somehow managed to start the camera and capture a most excellent self-portrait! Brilliant!

More monkeys then joined in on the photo shoot. "One of them must have accidentally knocked the camera and set it off because the sound caused a bit of a frenzy," Slater told the Daily Mail UK this week. "At first there was a lot of grimacing with their teeth showing because it was probably the first time they had ever seen a reflection."
