It is. I have now liked it on facebook. It is awesome to see, I love to photograph animals, and I have noticed that some animals love hamming up to a camera, though of course they cant know what it is, but they somehow see it as a little box that they receive attention if it is pointed at them.<br><br>
I have taken some really cool photos of various animals, and I noticed that some animals were real models, such as my tabby male, he really sits well,<br><br>
one of the lambs on the farm (my exes parents farm) would sit in many different poses and seemed to love the attention.<br><br>
There are animals that the camera just loves and they never take a bad shot whereas some really attractive looking animals can become instantly awkward in front of a camera.<br><br>
I noticed that both of the nanny goats were not to fond of the camera, but when their kids were born they were so blissed out with their kids that they took excellent photos.<br><br>
I cannot take many pictures of the kitten as she hates the flash and is scared of the camera in general. It is just like with people really.

I saw these pics this morning on the news and I wanted to run back to bed and hide under the covers. Monkeys and gorillas creep me out! They are so human like it's freaky!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I thought it was fake at first, the expression of the monkey is so adorable and priceless! The pictures are so well taken, too. They're my new phone wallpaper <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br>
Also, freesia, I've noticed some animals pose for cameras, too. Whenever my pug sees me bring out my camera or hears the camera noise on my phone he runs over and will stare right at the lense or run and get his toy to show off, like a little clown. I think they love the attention.

Your pets are sitting beautifully in your photo. They are great models. I can see your pug trying his best there... : )

The Daily Mail story is full of holes.<br><br>
First is says <i>"a local group of crested black macaque monkeys, known for their intelligence and dexterity."</i><br><br>
then later in the story <i>"They aren't known for being particularly clever like chimps, just inquisitive"</i><br><br>
Also the idea that those Monkeys had never seen humans is laughable-Indonesia in general and Sulawesi are particular is crawling with people National Parks notwithstanding.<br><br>
The whole story has manufactured fell to it-perfect for the internet age-<i>"see the cuddly animals/laugh and feel cuddly and donate here"</i>
