A family got the vacation snap of their lives when a monkey grabbed their camera and took a selfie – before giving them the middle finger.

The Sunshine Coast family in Queensland, Australia, was on a dream vacation in Bali, Indonesia when they decided to take a day trip to the popular Ubud Monkey Forest.

Judy, 37, Simon, 36, and three children Elijah, 13, Jimmy, 11, and Kayleigh, eight, visited the sacred forest, where hundreds of monkeys reside.

They asked a local guide to take pictures of them during the day and were stunned to look back at the snaps and watch the curious monkey turn his middle finger.

After looking back at the photos, mother and administrative assistant Judy said that her family burst out laughing.

Judy said: & # 39; We were only in Bali for a week and thought it would be fun to take a day trip through Bali.

& # 39; As part of the tour we went to the monkey forest. I thought it would be a nice experience.

& # 39; When we were there, a guide offered to take our photo. But as he did, a monkey suddenly appeared in front of the camera.

& # 39; The guide had peanuts in his hand and then started feeding him. It was very funny.

& # 39; As I fluttered through the photos afterwards, I noticed that the monkey was actually giving us the finger.

& # 39; I showed my husband and we both started to laugh. We thought it was hilarious.

& # 39; The monkey definitely had a cheeky personality.

& # 39; We enjoyed it so much there and these funny pictures made it even better. & # 39;

The priceless snap was recorded during the family's holiday to Bali in December 2018 and was shared online for the first time this week.

Judy said the unforgettable image was one of the highlights of their entire trip – and added that it would not be long before she and her family returned to Bali.

The mother added: & # 39; I posted the photo on my Facebook and Instagram and all my family and friends thought it was hilarious.

& # 39; The experience was one of the highlights of our trip and the photo itself is something we can look back on to remember forever.

& # 39; Bali is such a beautiful place & we can't wait to go back one day. & # 39;
