Cheeky monkey steals camera and shoots himself - brilliant self-portrait pictures
Give a cheeky monkey a camera and eventually he'll snap some brilliant self portraits.
That's what wildlife photographer David Slater, from Coleford, Gloucestershire, discovered on a trip to a national park in Indonesian.
David's camera was stolen by a crested black macaque monkey who was fascinated by his own reflection in the lens. He managed to take hundreds of pictures before David could retrieve his equipment.
Reminds me of that great squirrel picture when another cheeky chap popped up in front of the lens as a couple of tourists tried to take their picture in Banff National Park.
