    Macaque borrows photographer's camera to take hilarious self-portraits

    Visiting a national park in North Sulawesi, Indonesia, award-winning photographer Mr Slater left his camera unattended for a while.

    It 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. The upshot: A splendid self-portrait.

    The macaque also took some pictures of her fellow primates and a picture of a confused photographer who was trying to bribe a macaque with bananas in order to get his camera back.


    “They were quite mischievous jumping all over my equipment, and it looked like they were already posing for the camera when one hit the button. The sound got his attention and he kept pressing it. At first it scared the rest of them away but they soon came back – it was amazing to watch.”

    “He must have taken hundreds of pictures by the time I got my camera back, but not very many were in focus. He obviously hadn’t worked that out yet. I wish I could have stayed longer as he probably would have taken a full family album.”

    ...

    The authenticity of the images was questioned on Twitter but Slater says they are genuine. “They do look strange anyway because of their punk hairdo and their reddish eyes.”
