We often see photographs of wildlife or of photographers taking pictures of wildlife. But what about wildlife photographers? That is, animals taking pictures?

It's unusual for animals to use tools, although these critters certainly seem to want to. We all know that chimps and other primates sometimes use tools, but did you know that octopuses also use them? And that crows are so smart, that they understand how to displace water?

These adorable photos capture the unexpected encounters between photographers and their subjects. Some animals seem to want to help out; others get behind the camera themselves.

Have you ever had an animal want to participate in your photography? Vote on your favorite photo, or post your own below!
