Perfect composition. Excellent lighting. Not even a hint of red-eye.
This elephant is better at taking holiday snaps then you. Possibly.
The rather epic selfie (inevitably dubbed an 'elfie') was taken earlier this year but has recently gone viral.
The subject of the pic is 22-year-old Christian LeBlanc who says it happened while he was traveling with his girlfriend in Thailand earlier this year.
He told CNN that the couple had “[come] across a couple elephants,” and had decided to buy some bananas to feed them.
He said: “The elephant quickly ate what little bananas I had and become touchy, trying to find more food. "Next thing I knew it grabbed my GoPro by the mount.”
The camera had been set to continuous shooting mode at the time.
He added: “I got the selfie of a lifetime, which I can't take full credit for. Elephants are incredibly intelligent, and it definitely makes you wonder if it was a conscious action.”
It is not however, the first ever 'elfie', there was this (far poorer) version last year in the UK.Suggest a correction
