The curious monkey jumped up onto a motorcycle after catching his reflection in the wing mirror – and started pulling a series of hilarious faces at himself as he monkeyed around.

The incredible scenes were caught on camera by photographer Ronny Buol, from North Sulawesi in Indonesia, at conservation area Tangkoko on the island’s northern coast.

Ronny, 42, said: “The monkeys are really funny – they often play up and act for the camera.

“This monkey jumped up on a parked motorcycle out of nowhere.

“He was checking himself out in the wing mirror – he looked intrigued by his own reflection.
