A MONKEY "SELFIE"
While photographing wildlife
in the Indonesian forest in 2011,
photographer David Slater
set up his tripod on the island of Sulawesi.
When he walked away for a few moments,
a band of crested macaque monkeys moved in.
A curious macaque grabbed his camera,
and started taking pictures . . .
including this now famous "selfie."
After posting this photo on social media,
Slater fought for media rights and compensation
for the self-shot animal photo.
Wikimedia has held that the image is
"public domain", as Slater didn't take the photo.
The monkey did. Of course.
(I think the monkey is actually smiling!)
