15 Animal Photobombs That Instantly Improved The Shot

Photobombing is one of our favorite phenomena, and it dates back to before we even had the internet! We have evidence of people sneaking into the background of pictures as early as the Civil War, but it wasn’t until the trend hit the web that it truly took off.

Best of all, it’s not just people who love sneaking into perfect frames. Animals are natural photo crashers! Our feathered, furry, and fishy friends have an uncanny ability to improve just about every shot they invade, and these 15 images will prove it!
