Yes So True  this did actually Happen as captured

 

It's been said one of the keys to comedy is - timing!  Well definitively so-true here with this image taken just after one tourist brought her iPhone way too close.  A macaque monkey snatched it from her and made a getaway to the middle of the hot springs in Jigokudani, Japan - a once relatively unknown location - it has now grown in popularity, now hosting loads of visitors and photographers.
