The great thing about traveling with experienced tour guides and adventure guides
is you’re guaranteed to visit innumerable photo-worthy spots. But while photography tour guides
like Suzanne Rushton
in Canada ensure you return home with next-to-flawless, self-taken pics of spectacular scenery, there is no certainty a curious animal won’t pop itself into your picture at the last second. This unplanned insertion that takes away from the original focus is called photobombing, and it’s got the GuideAdvisor crew in fits of laughter.
After mountaineering with guides in Morocco and Canada, or snorkeling with those in Hawaii and Mexico, don’t be alarmed if you develop your photos only to find the head of a squirrel taking center stage in one, or the rear-end of a horse filling half the shot of another; animals are inquisitive creatures who want in on the action. Here are some of GuideAdvisor’s favourite instances of animal photobombing.
