Macaque steals 5D Mark II and becomes a photographer

Incredible but true!
It has happened in an Indonesian national park.
A macaque grabbed a camera equipment of David J. Slater and captivated by the reflection in the lens, started snapping himself.
Slate had a Canon 5D Mark II and Canon EOS 40D with which he shoots wildlife.
The macaque shot a couple hundred pictures by the time that Slater was able to recover the equipment. While many of the shots were out of focus, the majority of the pictures showed the monkeys showing off their teeth as it’s likely the first time they had seen their reflections. Slater said that the group of monkeys was initially frightened by the clicking sounds of the camera, but they all eventually returned to check out the gear.” Digitaltrends
