Camera Shy? Not For These Hilarious Macauques in Sulawesi

Some animals are famously camera shy, but not for these black crested macaques. British photographer Anup Shah captured these pictures during a trip to Tangkoko National Park, Sulawesi, Indonesia.  He said, “These pictures were taken over a period of four weeks and at no time did the monkeys’ tire of interacting.”

The playful creatures cheekily posed for the camera without even a hint of fear in the presence of the human intruders, some staring straight into the lens while others seemed to prepare for a group selfie.

With an unremitting stream of tourists visiting the national park every day, it is perhaps no surprise the macaques were far from camera shy.

“The monkeys were very curious and would come within touching distance,” said Shah.
