Mono fantastico

When I read about how a group of monkeys got hold of a professional camera in the wild, I thought the article would include shit-throwing and a broken piece of equipment.  However, when one photographer left his camera unsupervised and the local macaques decided to investigate, the results were nothing short of spectacular.  They were apparently fascinated by their own reflections in the lens, and the sound of the shutter.  The combined result was lots of out of focus shots, and a few fantastically engaging self-portraits like this one.  Stories like this makes that heart-shaped light in my chest glow extra bright.

Do yourself a favor and see the other photos, and read the article here.
