Facebook Update

+++ UPDATE: My image won the People's Choice Award in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition -- announced here -- a big thank you to all the people who voted for my picture! +++

 

I need your help. My picture ‘Facebook Update’ is in the running for the People’s Choice Award of the 2014 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. If you like my picture and think it deserves a vote, then you can help me in two ways:

 

1. Vote for me here: Public's Choice Award.

2. Share this post on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

 

The story:

A tourist was taking pictures with her iPhone of this snow monkey in a natural hot spring, but she came way too close - the monkey grabbed the phone and played with it for quite a while . It even managed to make the built-in flash go off. Needless to say that the iPhone did not survive the underwater session that followed.

 

Thank you!

 

Marsel
