Photobombing has probably been around since cameras were invented in the 1800’s, but it really gained steam as a “thing” about a decade ago.
Selfies kind of stole the photobomb’s thunder in recent years, but it’s hard to imagine the photobomb will ever die. People still do bunny ears in photos, right?
Well cell phones began being manufactured with cameras that were easy to access, people started taking more pics, therefore the chance for someone or something to accidentally (or purposely) get in the shot is increased.
There’s also the fact the photobomber thinks it’s funny and let’s be honest, it usually is.
Now, some are better than others. The setting or location, who the photobomber is, if they are an unknown participant or did it on purpose, and the circumstances why the photo is being taken in the first place all play a part in what makes a great shot.
There hasn’t been a photobomb that encaptures everything that makes them so entertaining that it goes viral in a long time but earlier this month, one couple was able to garner online attention after one outgoing animal decided she wanted to be a part of their engagement photo.
Back on Oct. 8th, a guy named Nick wanted to propose to his girlfriend Hayley in a special place.
The two were celebrating their one-year dating anniversary at The Cincinnati Zoo. Hayley was very excited to see the baby hippo Fiona that is housed there and the couple was waiting in line for a photo with her.
Hayley handed her phone to someone to take their photo with Fiona and when she turned back around, Nick was one on knee!
Not to be upstaged, Fiona made sure she had a spot front and center for the big moment:
It’s definitely one of the most adorable photobombs in an engagement photo ever!
After Hayley posted the pic to her Instagram account, tagging the zoo, the trio has become quite a hit.

The best thing about animal photobombs is their faces in the pics. Popping the question at Fiona’s habitat may become a popular thing to do in Cincinnati but the magic of Nick and Hayley’s photo will never be captured again.
