When Animals Photobomb: A Collection of Hilarious Moments
1 Not Intended
This photo seems to have been taken to immortalize a bride with her maid of honor, or a close friend, on the beach on her big day.
But it’s hard to tell since the two women are well hidden by the head of this dog who jumped directly in front of the camera. He seems embarrassed to have ruined the photo, right?
2 Who’s Gonna Eat The Ice Cream?
When a sneaky pup photobombs your ice cream moment! This furry friend couldn’t resist the sweet scent of this cone and wanted to claim a taste for himself.
Who can blame him? Ice cream is the ultimate summer treat, and it looks like this pup is all about eating an ice cream cone too.
3 What’s This?
This couple of hikers was enjoying a beautiful day on the trail when a curious squirrel jumped into the frame, making their photo memories even more special.
The squirrel’s unexpected appearance adds a touch of humor to this adventure and serves as a reminder that nature is full of surprises.
4 Hippo Witness
This couple was getting ready to take the next step in their relationship when they were joined by a surprise guest.
This hippo couldn’t resist the opportunity to be part of the moment and photobombed the proposal, making it an even more unforgettable memory. Here’s to a lifetime of love and unexpected adventures!
5 Couldn’t Wait
This dog clearly had something important to leave behind and decided to do so in the middle of this photo op.
While it may not be the most glamorous of photobombs, it’s a reminder that our furry friends have a knack for adding some unexpected humor to our lives. At least someone’s enjoying the great outdoors!
This young girl were enjoying a peaceful day with her family when she suddenly became the subject of a curious beluga whale. The beluga was clearly interested in her, but in a not-so-friendly way.
This unexpected encounter with this hungry creature makes for a truly unforgettable experience and a once-in-a-lifetime photobomb.
7 Just Passing
This woman was taking in the beautiful scenery on a tropical island when a friendly iguana jumped into the frame, adding an extra touch of excitement to her vacation memories.
The iguana’s bold photobomb is a reminder that even in the most idyllic destinations, there’s always room for a little bit of unexpected fun.
8 Everybody Smile!
This bride was having a picture-perfect moment on horseback when the horse decided to add a little extra flair with a playful nuzzle and silly face.
While it may have interrupted the bride’s serious expression, this photobomb adds a touch of humor to the day and serves as a playful reminder to always embrace the unexpected moments in life.
9 Giant Dog
Is it a giant dog that appears in this picture, looking down on these two people and wondering who they are?
We don’t know what these two persons are looking at, but the dog is looking at the camera very closely, creating a funny and original photobomb.
10 Who’s There?
A photographer noticed two small llama heads poking out from behind a rock while hiking in the mountains.
The scene leads us to believe that they are two very curious llamas who wonder who is on their territory. Hey, who’s there?
11 Oh, Sorry
This turtle took its head out of the water at the same time that the picture of this group of divers was taken.
It seems to be saying, “oops, sorry, didn’t mean to disturb you!” Still, we’re sure they’re quite happy to have this photo as a souvenir.
12 Part Of The Family
This couple wanted a beautiful photo of them with their horses to immortalize this moment of pregnancy forever.
But the horse on the right was so happy to be there. He loves this couple so much! He is part of the family, after all!
13 They Found Me
This man is very happy to have his picture taken with the gorilla behind him, sitting upstairs on the bridge.
The gorilla, though, seems rather surprised, as if to say, “Oh no, they found me! How did they do that?”
14 The Big Jump
This man only wanted a picture of him surfing the waves, but he got a nice extra.
Imagine looking at the picture afterwards and realizing that behind you, a whale was jumping. It’s amazing!
15 Give Me A Hug
This man certainly did not expect that this monkey would jump on him when he just wanted to give him some food.
But this monkey wanted a little bit of love instead. Come on, give me a hug, please!
16 Part Of The Family
There’s nothing like a nice family photo to have great memories to look back on later.
But a family photo involves ALL the members of the family, doesn’t it? There’s no way that dog is not included in the picture and will be forgotten as time goes by.
17 Unusual Groomsman
Getting married in an aquarium is something rather unusual, we must admit. It’s not often that you see such a ceremony in that kind of place.
This beluga was also very curious to attend the celebration. Don’t you think he makes a perfect groomsman?
18 Happy Seal
It was supposed to be a picture of penguins, but this seal wanted to be part of the gang.
Can you blame him? He seems so happy to make new friends!
19 Is It Me You’re Looking For?
While this photographer was analyzing the last shots he took, this mouflon decided to pay him a visit.
Is it me you’re looking for? Do you want my picture? I’m right here, buddy!
20 Flying By
When visiting Italy, Milan is a must-see city. And who says Milan says inevitably the cathedral of Milan. It is so beautiful!
Like everyone else, this man wanted to be photographed in front of it, but a pigeon decided that he would remain incognito. No face for you!
21 Failed Remake
The “I’m flying” scene from the movie Titanic is certainly one of the most famous in the history of cinema. Who has never wanted to recreate it with their significant other during a trip on a boat?
This couple tried to do it, but unfortunately, the effect was a bit spoiled when the woman received a seagull in the face.
22 Not The Llama
This woman wanted to take a nice picture with this friendly llama, but this bird of prey decided otherwise.
Why take a picture with a llama when the bird is there, available to become famous? This bird refused to be put aside.
23 Urgent Need
Animals have their own way of life, and even if they are dressed by humans, sometimes they still do as they please.
This elephant was far too attracted to the one in front of it to wait until the end of its work day to relieve his urges.
24 Scary Ostrich
This woman wanted to feed an animal through her car window, potentially this ostrich, but it doesn’t seem to have gone as planned.
For some reason, this woman seems to be completely frightened by this ostrich that appears in her window. It seems to be quite friendly, though, doesn’t it?
25 Swimming With A Seal
It is possible to see a wide variety of marine species when diving, especially fish.
But this woman was lucky enough to get her picture taken with a curious seal that was swimming by. It is so cute!
26 Adventurous Duck
While these two people were riding down the mountain on a motocross bike and someone was taking their picture, something very unexpected happened in front of the camera.
But what could a duck be doing there? And what were the chances that it would rise in front of the lens when the picture was taken?
27 Friendly Deer
We usually prefer not to see deer when we are driving, but this time was different.
This deer seems really friendly, and this man seems happy to take a picture with it, even though he also seems a little nervous and uncomfortable.
28 Romantic Pooping
This couple was in the middle of a romantic sunset photoshoot when their dog decided to get involved.
A photo of a couple with their pet is nice, but not when it decides to poop at the same time.
29 Goofy Horse
This couple wanted beautiful, romantic and rustic photos taken outside, in front of the horses’ pen.
This horse, however, refused to be only an extra in this picture. He was feeling goofy and wanted to be noticed.
30 Barbie Cat
We are not sure where this Barbie’s head is. Has it been ripped off or is it just under the cat’s head?
Either way, it looks like this Barbie actually has a big cat head and it’s very funny!
31 Curious Seagull
This green and white lighthouse was of great interest to the person who took this photo, but despite them, it was not the main subject of the picture.
A seagull was very interested in the camera lens and wanted to try to see what was going on in there.
32 Yuck, Love
This would have been a very nice romantic picture of this couple kissing in the sun if it wasn’t for this cat who got in front of the camera at the wrong time.
He potentially ate something that disgusted him, probably grass, but considering the situation, it looks like it is disgusted by what is happening behind it.
33 I Want Attention!
Accepting animals at your wedding is always a risk. You never know when they might choose to let off steam.
This couple brought their dog to their wedding, and in the middle of the ceremony, the dog decided to go roll around on the ground right in front of them.
34 Frog Face
Here is potentially our new favorite funny picture. It’s just perfect!
This person placed the frog in exactly the right place, and at exactly the right angle so that it looks like it’s actually their face. Genious!
35 Mom, What’s That Thing?
This friendly stingray wanted to take a look at its new visitors, but it seems that this child was perplexed.
But what is this strange creature looking at me from inside the aquarium? Can we leave? It scares me.
36 Puffer Head
Puffer fish are really intriguing and original. Imagine, a fish that can inflate itself! It’s amazing!
And this diver not only got to have one up close, but they saw it inflate, and in the picture, it looks like the fish is their head. That’s awesome!
37 Hey, Hey!
While this woman only wanted to take a nice, slightly serious photo with her favorite horse, the latter had other plans.
Here is a very goofy horse, much too happy to be photographed with this woman.
38 Celebrating The Love
This couple wanted to celebrate their love in front of the dolphin pool, and they were obviously thanked for it.
As the lovers kissed, a dolphin jumped high out of the water. It didn’t want to miss this celebration for anything!
39 Sociable Zebra
This zebra was far too happy to make a new friend that day.
He stuck its head in the car through the window with great pleasure to take a nice picture with this man!
40 Oh, Hey!
We would very much like to know under what circumstances this cat found itself in this strange posture, in the middle of the air.
Anyway, it looks like it was jumping, but its attention was drawn behind it for some reason, like, “Oh, hey, I didn’t see you, how are you?”
41 All Smiles
This horse makes us laugh a lot. It is all smiles for the camera, extremely happy to show us its huge yellowish teeth.
Maybe it’s just the angle of the picture, but it looks like its right eye is squinting. This horse looks pretty silly, doesn’t it?
42 Driving Dog
The angle at which this photo was taken totally gives the impression that the head of this dog belongs to the body of this man.
Plus, with the look on that dog’s face, it’s like it’s looking at the camera wanting to say, “yes, I’m the one driving this car, hehe!”
43 Chilling Sloth
Using his selfie stick, this man wanted to take a selfie with a sloth that was in a tree.
Very chill, the sloth accepted to pose for the picture. Really, we love it! How cooperative!
44 I’m In The Police Too!
These officers were on duty and posed for a picture when a smiling horse snuck into the frame, adding a touch of humor to the moment.
The horse’s unexpected appearance lightens the mood. He wants to be in the police, too!
45 Picture Ready
When you look at this image, it looks like this yellow and blue fish was totally posing for the picture.
It even looks like it is smiling, showing all hits teeth! This woman must be very happy to have such a souvenir.
46 Broken Dog
It is very difficult to understand this picture. Either it’s in fact a portait pitcure or this dog is broken.
On the left, it really looks like a brick wall, and everything else looks like it’s in the right place too. So what is this dog doing lying on the ground, pretending to be sitting on the wall?
47 All The Corn
In the picture on the left, this kitten seems to devour the corn cob with frugality and satisfaction.
In the photo on the right, however, it doesn’t seem quite sure it likes its meal anymore. A little too salty, perhaps?
48 Head In A Cup
Corgis are really cute dogs. They are like little hairy balls on short legs.
This corgi’s head is so well placed behind this wine cup that the effect is perfect. It looks like a little tub dog with a very small head!
49 Give Me The Bananas!
If there is one thing you should know when visiting a zoo, it’s that you should never hold a banana while approaching the enclosure of any primate.
This gorilla would really like to steal these bananas from these two young girls, and if there wasn’t a window separating them, it would just eat them.
50 What Is Happening?
This woman wanted to film her workout, so she put her camera on the ground so it’s at the same level as her.
But everyone knows that it is impossible to place a camera on the ground if you have a cat. Inevitably, it will come and stand in front of it, trying to figure out what it’s all about.
51 Please Don’t Leave Me!
We don’t know if this woman was already married when this picture was taken, but clearly, if this cat had a say, it would certainly be the one opposing the marriage.
Its goofy stance as it jumps behind the woman seems to mean, “no, please don’t leave me, I’m the love of your life!”
52 Are You Lost?
Llamas always have a friendly, curious, and slightly funny expression. Never does a llama look angry or dangerous.
While we can see tourists in the background, this llama who placed himself in front of the camera seems to want to offer his help. Are you lost?
53 Part Of The Gang
These three men were very happy with their camel ride and wanted to immortalize the moment.
This camel, included in the picture, could not be happier. After all, it is part of the gang now!
54 Come Here, Friend
While this reporter was live on television, the elephant behind him wanted his attention.
Imagine trying to concentrate and work while an elephant puts its trunk all over you!
55 Flying Cat
There was absolutely nothing memorable going on two seconds before this picture was taken. This person just wanted to capture a good moment with the people they love.
But lo and behold, just as the photo was taken, a cat jumped out, and you can see it hovering behind the group. But where did it come from?
56 Good Measure
Do you always have trouble calculating the right portion of spaghetti to cook, ending up with too much each time?
Well, this person has found the solution to your problem. Use a snake to get the perfect measurement! We’re not sure how this will help you, but that’s another story.
57 Just A Bite
This woman just wanted to pose with a camel, but it didn’t turn out as planned.
A sudden urge to eat the woman’s head passed through the camel’s mind, and lo and behold, it tried to bite her. It must be a surprising moment!
58 Slippery Body
This girl pretended to want to kiss a fish that she was holding in her hands, but her pretending came true in spite of herself.
The fish suddenly slipped out of her hands, hitting her in the face, directly on the mouth. Yuck!
59 Scary Bear
While this young mother and child were in their car visiting a zoo, they drove past the bear enclosure.
However, the latter did not look very happy to see them passing there. It would clearly prefer to be left alone without all these visitors to disturb it.
60 Hello, Everybody!
In every group, there is always one person who wants all the attention on them, thinking they are more interesting than the others.
This also seems to be true for ostriches, and it is obvious who is the protagonist of this group.
61 Don’t Steal My Fame!
This cat posed nicely for the camera, but the lizard in the vivarium behind it also wanted to be in the picture.
While the lizard put on its best smile for the photo, the cat didn’t seem to appreciate the intrusion. It was ITS picture!
62 Not A Nice Feeling
What an incredible experience to swim with stingrays. They had to immortalize the moment for sure!
These women would have preferred that this man did not put a stingray on their backs, though. They seem to be completely distraught!
63 Giraffe’s Grimace
What was meant to be a beautiful photo of a couple with a giraffe quickly turned into a comical giraffe photo.
Not only does the giraffe’s head completely hide the man’s, but it also makes a face as if to mock him.
64 Fish Head
This man wanted a souvenir photo of him diving, surrounded by fish.
Not only will he have a nice souvenir of this moment, but this photo is quite comical! This man now has a fish head.
65 Turn Around!
We don’t know what these women were taking picture of when this photo was taken, but it’s clear they were missing an incredible moment.
Ladies, I’m right behind you, turn around! Luckily, at least one person saw this elephant and was able to capture the scene.
66 I’m In The Pic Too!
This sloth wanted to be in the picture too, and his appearance in the frame is absolutely perfect.
We love sloths! They always look a little silly, but so nice! We would all like a picture like this one with a sloth.
67 Not Even A Real One!
This photo of a cute lioness resting was photobombed by a teddy bear.
This teddy bear is cute, but it’s not even real! We find this photo particularly funny.
68 New York Pigeon
When we are in New York, we never get tired of taking pictures of the city from the top of several floors. The view is so beautiful!
This pigeon was curious about what this person was trying to do. A picture of the city? Why not a picture of me?
69 Great White Shark
This photo is both incredible and terrifying. This great white shark seems so close to the boat, and with the angle, it’s as if it was going to eat the man’s head directly!
We wonder if this man knew that this great white shark was there, right next to him, or if he just knew it after seeing the picture. Imagine his astonishment!
70 Big Scare
All this dolphin wanted was to have his picture taken with this young girl. He even makes a nice smile for the camera!
This young girl however seems absolutely terrified of the aquatic visitor behind her.
71 Hello, Flamingo!
This woman was posing to take a beautiful photo of herself on vacation to share on Instagram. Only, an intruder came into the picture.
Hello, flamingo. This close-up of the neck and head of this flamingo is really funny, we love it!
72 So Wet
This dog didn’t care about the beautiful and sexy vacation picture in the sea of this group of women in swimsuits.
He was too wet, it was unpleasant. Let’s shake it up!
73 Cat Fun
This set-up was so beautiful, we had to immortalize it. It makes a perfect photo to share on social media!
Be quick, though, because this cat has spotted this strange branch and is determined to catch it!
74 Majestic Chicken
Taking a picture at the Gates of Heaven, in Pura Lempuyang Luhur, is not easy. So many tourists want a picture at this place that you have to be very patient.
This woman finally got her turn, and fortunately, the weather was good enough to create a majestic and memorable image. Unfortunately, a chicken was also on the scene, which was not at all expected.
75 The Dog Who Got Photobombed
Let’s switch roles for once, shall we? This dog was so chic with his beautiful plaid bow tie, but now he got photobombed by a human!
This man who was passing by decided to make bunny ears on the back of this dog’s head while he was happily posing for the camera.
76 But What About Me?
This cute corgi was proudly posing for the picture, but his pug friend was a bit jealous.
But what about me? I want a picture too! Isn’t this pug totally cute with his little pitiful eyes?
77 No Stress
We don’t know exactly what was going on when this picture was taken, but the dog on the left seems to be trying to get under the other dog as he was running.
The dog that is being lifted off the ground looks extremely relaxed, though. It’s ok, no stress, I’ll be back on the ground very soon!
78 Haha, You’re Stuck!
Somehow this horse managed to get stuck between two bars of this metal fence, and now he doesn’t know what to do.
This cow that is photobombing this picture with a big smile on its face definitely seems to laugh at him. Haha, you’re stuck, dummy!
79 No Pic, Please!
This person was probably trying to take a picture of the cat lying on the back of the couch, but the other cat didn’t agree.
It jumped in front of the camera, front paws straight in front of its eyes, looking like it’s trying to say, “no, no picture, please!” This cat has had enough of the paparazzi.
80 Not What You Think
Wow! This person wanted to take a picture of this juvenile seagull, and they take it exactly when a big whale jumps right behind!
Except that this picture is very misleading. The photographer who took this picture explains that it was actually taken outside a seal shelter, where there is a statue of a jumping whale. The juvenile seagull was simply in front of the statue. We agree, it is a bit disappointing.
81 What Are You Looking At?
There is nothing more romantic than a beautiful photo of a couple looking at each other tenderly, more in love than ever.
This cat doesn’t seem to be quite okay with what’s going on, though. Maybe it didn’t want to be in the picture?
82 Enough Selfies!
This woman loves to take pictures of herself, but her cat is definitely tired of always being in the background of her selfies.
Seriously, enough with the selfies! Stop including me in your stories!
83 Funny Goat
These soldiers were taking a well-deserved break on a bench when a goat passed by.
But what’s going on with its neck? Why is it looking at the camera from this angle? Goats are strange.
84 Skype Photobomb
Virtual calls are becoming more and more common, but no one is safe from their pet photobombing their calls.
This dog wanted to talk to this man, too! Although he was looking a little too high. Maybe he wanted to take a closer look at what was happening on TV.
85 I Can Make Noise Too!
This man was blowing his alphorn in this field of dandelions, but he was not the only one playing his instrument at that time.
This cow decided to do her part in the music and started moving her head to make the bell she wears around her neck ring. This must have been a very interesting melody!
86 Cone Shaming
There is nothing fun for an animal about having to wear a cone after any surgery. It’s uncomfortable and embarrassing.
You only have to see the depressed look on this dog’s face to understand that he doesn’t like wearing that cone. The other dog, however, seems quite proud of not wearing one, and even seems to be laughing a little at his buddy!
87 Crazy Horse
The British love their horses so much! It’s not for nothing that even the Royal family has always owned several.
This horse doesn’t care about convention and looking good, though. He is happy! Maybe even a bit too much… When you look at him, he seems a bit crazy, right?
88 Psychic Squirrel
These newlyweds went to the top of a mountain to take an original and beautiful photo to celebrate their union.
Except that a squirrel decided that he was the star of the photo. Don’t you think he looks like a kind of crazy blind psychic trying to predict the future or something?
89 Some Fresh Air
Who has never taken a picture of ducks drifting quietly on the water on a beautiful day?
However, it is quite rare to have a picture of a duck with a goldfish in the background that suddenly decides to take a breath of fresh air! What is it doing there?
90 Lost Goose
This alpaca looks really cool with its nice haircut! It looks proud, and overall, this picture is very nice.
Except that its friend the goose got involved. No way it wasn’t in the picture! This goose seems a bit lost, though, don’t you think?
91 Who’s Photobombing Who?
It would be easy to say that the person who took this picture wanted to take the cat in the foreground, but when you look closer, it is less certain.
Given the angle of the camera, and the fact that the cat in the foreground is very close to the camera, we would be more inclined to believe that this person actually wanted to take a picture of the cat outside, with only its head sticking out behind the brick wall, and that the cat in the foreground arrived at the wrong time.
92 Mystery Animal
This photographer wanted to take a picture of this wild animal that was in front of him between the trees. A deer? A gazelle? An antelope?
It’s hard to say because at the moment of taking the picture, an elephant that was nearby decided to raise its trunk, which came to completely hide the animal in question.
93 Father And Son… And Dog
This had the potential to be a very nice souvenir photo of a dad with his baby, resting in bed. But an unwanted third being showed up at the wrong time.
Honestly, while photobombing this picture, this dog could have made a little effort and at least be cute! Here, it appears under about the worst possible angle!
94 Don’t Drink That
As this youngster snapped a photo of his prom look, he, unfortunately, didn’t bother to check the background.
Now, all people will see in the picture is a cat clearly prepared to drink out of the toilet.
95 You Up?
This cat is obviously very clingy. He can’t even let his owner take a photo without sneaking his head into the background.
Let’s hope his photobomb didn’t wake up this sleeping beauty.
96 Horsing Around
A drive-through animal park can be a fun family destination. Unless, of course, you’re this poor kid that was accosted by an overzealous horse.
His mom better put a quarter in the “therapy jar”.
97 Don’t Turn Around
Fishing can be such a relaxing hobby, and this man looks so proud of his catch. Unfortunately, the bear behind him looks pretty hungry.
Hopefully, the Grizzly was just posing for a selfie and didn’t rip that guy’s face off.
A person posted this hilarious family moment on Awkward Family Photos and said, “We met Bubbles the Elephant. She took a liking to my Dad.”
What a treat it was to have a professional photographer nearby to catch the action from every angle.
99 Party Crashers
Seagulls crashed the party in this perfectly timed photograph. It captured the chaos of the moment, that’s for sure.
The screaming lady is our favorite part of the entire scene.
100 What’s Up?
When you have a good time with friends, you definitely want to capture it!
This sea turtle also wanted to immortalize this good moment with its new friends.
101 Blending In
There’s nothing better than enjoying the sun when you have a comfortable place to do so.
This seal was tired of sunbathing on the rocky ground. Who could blame it?
102 New Friends
A parrot, a monkey, and a little boy pose for a photograph on the beach. Does that sound like the opening of a joke to anyone else?
We love how laid-back the monkey looks.
103 Goat Buddy
Want to go to the beach, but none of your friends are available to accompany you?
No problem, go with your goat!
104 Dolphin Bomb
A reader sent this family pic to Awkward Family Photos and said, “Dolphin jumped in front of my parents’ photo whilst in the USA.”
We have to fight the urge to hug that dolphin.
105 Monkey Business
It can be such an adventure to encounter wildlife while on vacation in exotic locations. One minute, you’re relaxing in the ocean, and the next, you’re negotiating with monkeys.
“Give us the bananas and no one gets hurt!”
106 Dog Days
Beach trips can be so romantic. This couple posed for a beautiful photo together on the beach.
Too bad Rover had to ruin it.
107 Family Outing
These kids were probably expecting a little pleasure ride, but their expressions lead us to believe that this activity is less fun than expected.
And what about Leo, who goes straight for a dive?
108 Awkward Timing
Children are so innocent that it sometimes leads to hilarious situations.
How much did the parents cry with laughter when their child tried to feed that kangaroo?
109 Testicular Bang
I want to take a picture with a monkey, it will be a nice souvenir!
At the moment of taking the picture, did the man realize what was happening on his head? The people behind him don’t seem to be sure how to react.
110 That’ll Show You
Remember when you put your puppy in timeout for peeing on the floor? Well, now he’s ready to show you why that was a mistake.
Hopefully, there’s no one around them on the beach, or else they’ll be getting a free show.
111 Animal Selfie
Who said selfies were only for humans? Not only did this cat want to be in the picture, but he also wanted to take it himself.
Really, this selfie is great! This cat even has the strange face of people who are not good with selfies and try to move their head back to see themselves better.
