As “selfies” become a sensation, so does “photobombing.” You can ask people to get out of the way while you take a picture in front of a landmark or a beautiful backdrop, but you simply can’t ask animals to leave.
Here are some of the best animal photobombs:
- As photographer Punam Dave snapped a photo of Cape Point’s wonderful Cliffside view, a baboon joined the scene with its pouting lips. The baboon just won’t leave the frame, so the photographer finally resolved to include the grumpy animal in the photo.
- Junichi Masuda wanted to take a photo of the World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu when suddenly a llama hopped out of nowhere and looked as though it really wanted to be included in the picture.
- Melissa Brandts took a photo of her and her husband in Canada’s Banff National Park when a squirrel hopped in front of the camera blurring up the couple on the background.
- A student volunteer group had their photo taken in one of their projects in Costa Rica, when a sloth joined the photo as if he wanted to volunteer as well.
- A group of tourist had their photo taken in Zimbabwe’s Rhino and Wildlife Conservation Centre. When a giant elephant stood behind them and joined the photo.
- You can see the funny look in these peoples’ faces when a stingray surprised them from behind while they were taking photos in the Cayman Islands.
- A hungry gorilla was included in this picture taken in an Australian zoo.
- This outrageous photo shows how the camel took a bite on this woman’s face as she took a “selfie.”
- A smart dolphin joined a family portrait at the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
- A kangaroo jumps into the photographers frame covering up the main subject.
