Self-portrait by Crested Black Macaque, courtesy of David SlaterEven a monkey can take a prize-winning photo to rival that of the professional.

British photographer David Slater had been living among a group of endangered Crested Black Macaques in Indonesia, when one of them grabbed a camera and started snapping away.

The macaque took hundreds of photos as he made off with the award-winning photographer’s camera, but became fascinated with his own reflection in the lens.

The resulting self-portraits have made news around the world.
