Monkey Borrows a Canon 5D MkII for Some Self Portraits

This happy snapper pictured below is now the most famous crested black macaque in the planet. He borrowed a Canon EOS 5D Mark II for a while from photographer David Slater to take some self-portraits as well as other photos of it’s mates. Talented fellow

The primate went to investigate the equipment before becoming fascinated with his own reflection in the lens.


And it wasn’t long before the crested black macaque hijacked the camera and started snapping away sending award-winning photographer David Slater bananas.


David, 46, said: “One of them must have accidentally knocked the camera and set it off because the sound caused a bit of a frenzy.


“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. ~ Via Telegraph UK
