A Monkey Is Better At Self Photography Than You

I make an effort to keep photos of myself off the internet, not because I'm concerned about privacy because I gave up on that long ago, but mostly because I'm not capable of that relaxed-and-ready-to-photograph smile that people actually like to see in photos. Mostly, I end up tagged somewhere on Facebook looking like an awkward troll unprepared for the realities of human existence. It's sad. Livable, but sad.

However, accidentally leave your camera in a Indonesian national park and a black macaque takes the photo of a lifetime. I'm sure it went up as his Facebook profile pic immediately. However, it does cheer me up to know it took some trial and error for a monkey to take a great photo:

He must have taken hundreds of pictures by the time I got my camera back, but not very many were in focus. He obviously hadn't worked that out yet.
