    Default Photos taken by an orangutan prove a Facebook sensation

    A 33-year-old photographer has become an online sensation with pictures of her daily life at a Vienna zoo enthralling thousands of fans.
    But Nonja is no ordinary snapper - she is an orangutan.
    Her pictures have won over more than 20,000 fans on Facebook since the zoo launched an online photo album of her work on Tuesday.

    Nonja's companion poses for this thoughtful shot. The orangutan's photos are attracting an army of fans on social networking website Facebook

    She is proving so popular that hundreds more fans are becoming her online 'friends' each hour.
    However, the blurry images of Nonja's climbing rope and food and her companion's shaggy red-brown fur have won lots of admiring comments from fans, the photographer herself appears not so interested.
    Using a specially-adapted Samsung ST 1000 digital camera, Nonja is rewarded with a raisin that drops out of the equipment each time she takes a snap.

    The Vienna Tiergarten zoo set up the project to help keep Nonja and her three hairy ape friends entertained in their enclosure.
    'Of course the apes don't care about the pictures, they are just an accidental side product,' zoo spokesman Gerhard Kasbauer said.
    'They just know that when they press the button, a raisin pops out.'
    The popularity of Nonja's online album means she is now on her way to becoming a fully-fledged orangutan icon.

    Her photos can be seen on her Facebook page here.
