Perhaps they realise that youth is merely a transient phase of life and in a decade or so they will no longer qualify as "beautiful people" and be happy not to celebrate themselves as the centre and focus of all things.
Maybe they will purchase ever longer selfie sticks that disguise their wrinkles and crows feet as they age, or perhaps, spend fortunes on cosmetic proceedures to ensure their selfies will always reflect their youthful looks?
In some places the selfie phenomenon is in itself worth recording, such as those vying to position themselves in front of the Mona Lisa, or within the Blue Mosque in Istanbul.
At least in such places they are in no way harming or irritating another living creature, other than possibly fellow humans.
However, the quokka sellfies on the link below, thoroughly demonstrate just how invasive we humans can be when it comes to our need to share our self-worship and adulation.
If only the quokkas could voice how they felt about their inclusion in these photos, essentially, of humans?
Even better if those taking quokka selfies donated something towards the Park Ranger wages and Rottnest Island ecosystem conservation!
